The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has listed some factors responsible for the state of anarchy in which the country has found itself.
The Secretary-General of JNI, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, stated the factors in a statement issued in Kaduna.

According to him, “Ritual killing has permeated the space, plucking or removal of body parts from their abodes at the grave-yards is increasing at an alarming rate, broken homes amongst the Muslim communities, over trivial circumstances, fetish beliefs cum idiosyncrasies have taken over the real religious doctrines and yet we claim to be Muslims.
“The most alarming of these absurd acts is the denigration of the Glorious Qur’an for political, wealth generation and other considerations of this mundane world.”
He said, the JNI under the leadership of the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, called on Muslims to seriously intensify prayers for the restoration of law and order during Ramadan.
He urged Muslims to rise above board and do the right things as prayers alone without proportionate good deeds might not guarantee that supplications will be answered.
He called on governments at all levels, philanthropists and wealthy Nigerians to assist in making life bearable for the downtrodden during Ramadan.
He urged the government to arrest and prosecute all perpetrators of heinous crimes against humanity, taking into account recent most unfortunate happenings.
