Every Christian, Muslim Hate Preacher Must be Prosecuted- Sultan of Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, has called for the arrest and prosecution of people who preach and promote hate speeches in the Nigeria.

According to him, hate preaching is one major factor responsible for friction between Christians and Muslims in the country. "Preachers of hate must be reported to the security agencies," he said.

He also called on religious leaders and their followers to support the security agencies to deal with people who promote religious intolerance in the country.

“We must tell ourselves the truth, we must collaborate with authorities to deal with those who don’t want peace.

“ When you keep quiet, it means you are supporting what other individuals are doing and the masses will suffer.

He spoke at the opening of a two-day conference organised by International Dialogue Centre, KAICIID, an inter-governmental organisation that promotes dialogue to build peace in conflict areas on Wednesday.
