The Sultan of Sokoto and President General, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, (NSCIA), Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, on Wednesday said religions abhor killing. Sultan of Sokoto spoke when Innocent Idibia, a musician popularly called 2Face, paid him a courtesy call in Sokoto. Sultan of Sokoto added that Islam and Christianity preached peace and love among their faithful. According to the sultan, “No human being can claim to love God without loving his neighbour. Religion is a personal choice of an individual. Therefore, nobody can force any religion on anybody. Suicide bombers are going to hell.” The Sultan urged Idibia to continue to use his talent in promoting peace and peaceful coexistence amongst Nigerian youths. The monarch admonished youths never to allow selfish preachers and politicians to use them for their selfish reasons. Idibia had earlier promised to continue to use his talent to promote peace and peaceful coexistence amongst Nigerian youths.
