Oloyede was delivering the keynote address at the annual international conference on Islam in Nigeria, organised by the Islamic Welfare Foundation in conjunction with the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and Centre for Ilorin Studies, University of Ilorin.
Oloyede, who is the Secretary General of the NSCIA, spoke on the topic, “Islam in Nigeria: a Century of National Islamic Societies”.
He expressed concern with the spate of human rights abuses in the fight against Boko Haram, saying: “Muslims are generally becoming sceptical about the genuiness of the claims and actions of security agencies.   
“It is important to note that the war against Boko Haram is being impeded by what appears as ill-motif and hatred for Islam by those charged with security of the Nation. The recent Apo massacre and the highly suspicious allegations against a university lecturer who was generally known to have openly opposed Boko Haram activities, but yet being presented not only as sympathetic but also being a spiritual leader of the group, are recent pointers in support of the scepticism.”
The NSCIA scribe also advocated the integration of Islamic organisations in Nigeria, saying most of them perform similar functions.
He said the lecture represented his personal view as “a student of Islamic studies,” adding that most state branches of the NSCIA were not active.
Chairman of the occasion and Executive Secretary, Muslim Ummah of South-western Nigeria (MUSWEN) Professor Daud Noibi and Vice-Chancellor of Unilorin, Professor Abdulganiyu Olanrewaju, called on Nigerians to pray for an end to insurgency in the country.
National Coordinator of IWF, Dr. Aliu Badmus, condemned the constant reference to Boko Haram as an Islamic sect, noting that Boko Haram does not represent Islam.
