‘Military Yet To Bomb South, East By Mistake’ – Renowned Sokoto-based Islamic Cleric


A renowned Islamic scholar based in Sokoto, Sheikh Bello Yabo, has expressed concerns over the constant bombing of innocent citizens in the north by the military.

The Islamic cleric stated this while reacting to the bombing of Maulud celebrants in Tudun Biri village of Kaduna State by the military on Sunday.

In a viral video clip posted on social media, Sheikh Yabo dismissed the army’s claim that it was a mistake.

The Islamic scholar claimed that the military was yet to make such mistake in the southern or eastern parts of the country.

“It was not the first time the bombs were dropped on innocent people by security agencies, and they will claim it was a mistake,” he said.

“They once targeted IDPs in Borno. Same in Yobe, they also dropped a bomb in Nasarawa, and now it happened in Kaduna.

“Till date, the military has not made any error bombing in southern or eastern parts of this country. It always happens in the north because of our lack of unity.

“North is bleeding, bandits kill us, hunger kills us, and the military that are supposed to protect us are also killing us. This is too much for us. Who do we report to if not Allah, and we are telling him to have mercy on us and protect us,” he said.

Shaikh Yabo also claimed that the killings persisted because the northern leaders were not united due to personal interests.
