To a Peaceful Nigeria

The killing of the Shia Muslims by the Nigerian military because of road block during prayers was uncalled for. Unwarranted! Except if there is any hidden purpose.

I lived in Abuja for some years before I travelled… and I remember how every Friday is very frustrating for people living in the capital city, movement around the Central Mosque is always closed, prohibiting people from moving around that area or the roads linking to other places. I have sat in the traffic for hours because of Friday prayers and I wasn’t comfortable with it but I didn’t complain because we have the right to practice our different beliefs; religion.
So when I read about the story of the massacre of Shia Muslims because of this same cause, I feel the military is biased in handling this incident.

The President of Nigeria is a Sunni Muslim. The comments made by other Muslims in this matter is not encouraging but selfish and self-centered.

Nigeria is a peace loving country, the Shia and the Sunni Muslims must find ways to continue living in peace by tolerating one another, the military must stay out of religious disagreement, supremacy or conflict, the government through the President of the nation, must find ways to work with all and sundry, disassociating itself from religious rival.

We should love one another irrespective of tribe, religion, region, or status by living peacefully, so we can together fight and destroy Boko Haram from our country.

Remember we are one irrespective of religious differences. We are first and foremost Nigerians.

Let there be peace, harmony and unity in Nigeria.
