A national leader of the All Progressives Congress and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, says the attack on a mosque in Kano last Friday, which left over 100 worshippers dead, has shown that Boko Haram is not doing God’s work.
Tinubu said rather, the sect was doing the bidding of Satan.
The former governor said this in a statement on Sunday.
He said, “Attacks against numerous locations in the northeast demonstrate how heinous and debased Boko Haram and those who sponsor it have become. So depraved, they have become heartless and filled with enmity against all that is good and proper.
“This was not the act of human beings. These attacks could only have come from the hands of those who do not know God or serve God. This is the act of godless people.The hand of evil, deploying those who have given their selves over to wickedness, committed this terrible thing.
“No reason can be found for what was done except that BH has once again shown its lust for innocent blood and its disdain for life peacefully lived. Boko Haram killed people praying to God because the god of Boko Haram is Satan himself.”
The former governor said he was confident that Nigeria would overcome terrorism as evil could never overcome good.
He, however, said this was the time for all Nigerians, regardless of religion, to unite as this was the only way they could defeat the terrorists.
“Boko Haram seeks to scare and intimidate Christians and Muslims alike through wanton destruction. They may attack us but never shall this evil force subdue us. Christians and Muslims must stand arm-in-arm to face this terrorist onslaught,” he said.
