Lagos Muslims pray against kidnapping

Nigerian News Update » Nigerian Newspapers

The Muslim Community in Lagos State has organised a special prayer for Lagos State Governor and his cabinet for God to continue to increase their wisdom in steering the affairs of the state.
The prayer, led by the Chief Imam of Lagos, Sheikh Garuba Akinola Ibrahim, was attended by the five divisional chief Imams across the state and other dignitaries.
They sought God’s intervention for an end to kidnapping, armed robbery and other vices in the state.
Sheikh Ibrahim decried the spate of kidnapping in the state, urging the security operatives to device better ways of tackling the issue.
According to him, the issue is becoming embarrassing, despite the government’s huge investment in the security.
He warned the kidnappers to desist from the act and repent so as not to incur the wrath of Allah.

“They (kidnappers) should fear Allah and allow peace to reign in the state. We commend the efforts of our security agencies in tackling crime in the state, but they need to do more to curb the kidnapping cases,” he said.
In a message to the occasion, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode urged Lagosians to shun ethnic, political and religious differences and work towards building a safer and better Nigeria.

Governor Ambode, who was represented by Commissioner for Home Affairs, Dr Abdul-Hakeem Abdul-Lateeef, called on religious leaders to offer prayer for nation to overcome its challenges.
Speaking with reporters, Abdul-Lateeef assured Lagosians that the state government was not resting on its oars to end kidnappings in the state.
Basorun Musulumi of Lagos Basorun Sikiru Alabi-Macfoy, said the special prayers were offered for peace, unity and progress of the state.
