As part of efforts to avert the spread of unrest that occurred in neighbouring Sokoto State over alleged blasphemy that led to the murder of Deborah Samuel, a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, the Zamfara Commissioner of Police, CP Ayuba Elkanah held a peace-building meeting with all the religious leaders and other stakeholders at the Police Command Headquarters, Gusau.
Addressing the meeting, the CP expressed appreciation to all the religious leaders and other stakeholders for working assiduously to ensure that the State did not witness any breach of peace as a result of the Sokoto incident.
He urged them to sustain the tempo by constant preaching religious tolerance and respect for one another. The CP further called on parents and guardians to ensure proper monitoring of their wards, especially the use of Social Media to checkmate their daily activities.
While assuring them of the provision of adequate security for lives and property of all and sundry, he called on residents not to take Laws into their hands, instead, they should report any complaint to Security Agencies for proper action.
In their separate remarks, the religious leaders and other stakeholders commended the Zamfara Police Command for summoning the meeting as well as the proper handling of the security situation in Zamfara State and vowed to do everything humanly possible to ensure peaceful co-existence among their followers in the State.
