The Founder and Spiritual Head of Shafaudeen In Islam Worldwide, Alhaji Prof. Sabir Ariyo Olagoke, JP has called on the Federal Government to urgently relocate the people of Rijana, Katari, Kasaramati and Jere communities where many lives were lost as a result of the recent bandits attack.

Olagoke specifically advised the Federal Government not to think of closing the Kaduna – Abuja road as it will further boost the activities of the bandits who may think they have won.

The class, who is also the Mogaji Ogun Elu, Aare Alasa dynasty made this known in his Ramadan massage which he personally signed and made available to journalists in Ibadan.

Prof. Olagoke, while condoling with the families of the affected families of the victims, called on the President Mohamadu Buhari-led administration to urgently find a lasting solution to the lingering security problems bedeveling the country.

He then called on the Federal Government to use the four affected communities for the establishment of military base to eliminate the frequent attackc by bandits.

The cleric in his message congratulated Muslims all over the country and the world at large to embrace peace and imbibe the spirit of giving, which according to him, is one of the cardinal points of Ramadan.

He specifically called on wealthy Nigerians to remember the less privileged in the society and extend hands of fellowship to them during and after Ramadan.

He advised Muslims to see themselves as one and work together towards creating a better atmosphere for meaningful development of the nation.

“The solution is not to close the Abuja – Kaduna highway because it means the bandits have won. These criminals can not be above the law, “if Abuja – Kaduna Highway is closed, how many other highways will be closed in Nigeria as a result of kidnapping and banditry?

“Closing the highway is not the solution because it will embolden the criminals and cause unnecessary hardship to Nigerians.

“Over 7000, cars/busses are estimated to ply the Abuja – Kaduna highway daily so closing it will impact negatively on the economy , the criminals must not win,” he said.
