The Nasrul-lahi-l-Fatih Society (NASFAT) on Saturday called on Nigerians to embrace justice, peace and dialogue for a prosperous and inclusive Nigeria.

The organisation spoke against the backdrop of the recent spate of violent and tragic events across the country in the past few days.

The society expressed shock at the reported use of gunshots to disperse peaceful protesters at the Lekki toll gate and the wanton loss of lives and livelihood from incidents of arson, riots and looting by hoodlums in several states.

Similarly, the organisation, according to a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Akeem Yusuf, has set up a N10m victims restitution relief fund to provide succour to those injured and those whose businesses and properties may have been vandalised.

Additionally, the society plans to set up a Fellowship program for traditional and social media journalists to recognise, promote and reward reportage that accentuate instances of humane, conscientious and gallant acts of the Nigeria Police Force that promote good community relationship.

President of NASFAT, Mr. Niyi Yusuf, in the statement, said the society welcomes the directives for an immediate resolution of the crisis and justice to all affected persons from the mayhem in line with the laws and constitution of Nigeria.

The Chief Missioner of NASFAT, Imam AbdulAzeez Onike, also called for an immediate end to all forms of violence, banditry and arson for sustainable peace and security.

Imam Onike disclosed that NASFAT would observe special prayer for peace on Sunday during its weekly Asalatu program in all its locations and online.
