Following the recent discovery of improvised explosives at the Living Faith Church (aka Winners Chapel) Owerri which was later detonated by security agents. The Imo State government has commenced screening and identification of all members in the state who claim to be of Northern extraction.
The leader of the hausa community who is the Sarikin Hausawa, Alhaji Baba Saidu Suleiman who disclosed this to newsmen in Owerri said that the measure had become inevitable to ascertain the true identity of residents of the city who dubiously parade themselves as Hausa and also associate themselves with all forms of insurgency.
Suleiman expressed regret that all Hausas in the City have come to be associated with all manner of unpatriotic activities including the devilish acts of terrorism being perpetrated by the Boko Haram sect.
Dismissing the deadly Islamic fundamentalist sect as an evil quite unacceptable to any devout genuine Muslim in the country, the Hausa leader advised the people of the state to report any suspected member of the sect to the security agencies for prompt action.
“Boko Haram is evil and unholy which is alien and unacceptable to genuine Muslim,” he stated.
Meanwhile, panic gripped residents of the State following rumours that Boko Haram was set to bomb in specific areas of the state.
