Muslim Group Condemns Massacre Of Islamic Scholar In Ogun State

A muslim group, Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has described the gruesome killing of a popular Islamic scholar, Shaykh Amzat Salaam, his wife and four children as a “dastardly act.”

Amzat was butchered in his home in Atiba area, Odogbolu Local Government, near Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, alongside his wife and four children.

Director of the group, Professor Ishaq Akintola, in a press statement made available to newsmen said the killing reveals the underbelly of the Nigerian security agencies.

MURIC charges the Ogun State Police Command to fish out the killers of the Salaam family. We want justice. Nobody should murder an Islamic scholar, rout his whole family and get away with it. Ogun police must prove its mettle within days.

“We also call for their full cooperation so that the police can freely conduct its investigation. We urge Islamic scholars all over the country, particularly in Ogun State, to remain law abiding, to tighten security around them and to remain vigilant day and night. May Allah have mercy on the victims, forgive them and grant them Al-Jannah firdaus.

Finally, we appeal for calm among the Muslim faithfuls in the state. We also call for their full cooperation so that the police can freely conduct its investigation. We urge Islamic scholars all over the country, particularly in Ogun State, to remain law abiding, to tighten security around them and to remain vigilant day and night. May Allah have mercy on the victims, forgive them and grant them Al-Jannah firdaus,” the statement reads.
