#EndSARS: Inter-Faith Clerics Launch 21-Day Warfare Against Agents of Destabilisation

The National Inter-Faith and Religious Organization for Peace (NIFROP), on Thursday, began a 21-day warfare and intercessory prayers against agents of destabilisation troubling the country.

The group officially launched the campaign to cleanse Nigeria of the demonic spirit behind the EndSARS protests at the Unity Fountain, Abuja.

Declaring the 21-day exercise open, NIFROP’s Patron, Sheik Mohammed Adamu, said the demonic spirit of homosexuality is behind the EndSARS protests in the country.

While welcoming peaceful protests seeking positive change, Sheik Adamu said the last mass action had a spirtual undertone.

According to the clerics, the enemies of Nigeria wanted to use the protests as an avenue to infiltrate the demonic spirit of homosexuality into the country by all means.

The group, however, called on all Nigerians to pray for the country as we do not have anywhere else to call home.

At the end of the prayers, Sheik Adamu assured that the nation would be cleansed of all demonic impurities brought about by the EndSARS protest.

He added that all the sponsors of the protests would also be exposed and put to shame.

As-Salam-u-Alaikum wa-rahmatullahi wa-barakatuh
Barak Allah fik
Barak Allah fi nayjiria
Yahmik Allah

I bring good tidings to you all gathered here to pray for Nigeria in this critical point of our existence under the umbrella of the National Inter-Faith and Religious Organization for Peace, which have been at the vanguard of promoting religious tolerance in the country and interceding for Gods intervention in our affairs.

We are gathered here in our usual manner to speak in one voice for Allah’s mercies to continue to be with Nigeria even as some undesirable elements are attempting to cause a crisis of unimaginable proportion through the demonic infiltration of the EndSARS protest across the country.

While it is a good thing to embark on peaceful protest seeking positive change in the society, it is, however, against the instructions of Allah. “O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He is an outright enemy to you.” (Holy Quran: 2, 208)”

Quran is the holy book of Allah; it was revealed on Mohammad peace and blessings be upon him. The Quran contains the teachings of Islam. It tells us why Allah created humans, and what does he wish us to do to win his pleasure.

Prophet Mohammad is the last messenger of Allah to humankind. Allah says in the Holy Quran that he has sent Mohammad peace and blessings be upon him as a mercy to the worlds. Not as a king or a dictator or a tyrant ruler, but as peace and blessing for all.

“O humankind, We have created you from a male and a female, and have made you into nations and tribes for you to know one another.  Truly, the noblest of you with God is the most pious.2  Truly, God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. Quran, 49:13.”

The Prophet Muhammad, in his famous last sermon of Hajj, said: {O people!  Your God is one, and your forefather (Adam) is one.  An Arab is not better than a non-Arab, and a non-Arab is not better than an Arab, and a red (i.e. white tinged with red) person is not better than a black person, and a black person is not better than a red person, except in piety.

My dear faithful ones, this revelation from Allah is indeed the source of strength for the National Inter-Faith and Religious Organization for Peace. We have come together for several years under one umbrella and praying to God for divine intervention in the affairs of Nigeria.

Our Christian brothers and sisters have prayed from the Holy Bible; our Muslim brothers and sisters have also prayed from the Holy Quran for divine intervention in the affairs of our great country. And before our very eyes, we have seen the great work of God in the affairs of Nigeria.

We must all see our intercessions as a duty we owe our dear country. For the Holy Quran teaches us to become better humans. Rasool Allah told his companions, that Gabriel kept on recommending me about treating the neighbours in a kind and polite manner, so much so that I thought that he would order me to make them my heirs.

The Quran says, “O you who believe! Fear Allah and seek a wasila to him”(5:35). God tells the Prophet (PBUH): “And in the night, pray the tahajjud, which is additional for you for soon your Lord will raise you to the Station of Praise (Maqam Mehmud)” (17:79).

A hadith states that on that day people will be running to and fro looking for an intercessor, until they come to the Prophet Muhammad, who will answer, “I am for intercession”. The Lord will then ask him to “…intercede, for your intercession will be heard” (Bukhari).

We have consequently gathered here to offer prayers of intercession for Gods intervention against the forces of Satan standing up against pour country. The EndSARS protest, as we all know, is an avenue that the demonic Spirit of homosexuality intends to penetrate Nigeria by all means.

My faithful ones, we must join our voices and pray for Nigeria because we do not have anywhere to call home. Our hopes and aspirations for Nigeria are built on the promises of God to deliver us in times of need, such as these when agents of darkness have conspired against us using the EndSARS protest.

I want to give is this charge that as we begin this 21-day prayer. We shall be specifically praying to God for the spiritual cleansing of Nigeria from the demonic Spirit behind the EndSARS protest across the country.

On this important occasion of 21 days prayers, we’re aware, more than ever, that our times are in God’s hands. We need His presence and power to be displayed in our nation. We need unity and love to stir our hearts and give direction to our days. We need the wisdom to guide us; we need the Spirit to lead us, to live out godly lives that would bring honour to our country.

We shall be praying for all those in authority, for every leader of our nation, that God would give them wisdom and discernment as they lead. We pray that their hearts would be directed first to God that they would recognize where their true help and strength come from.

We pray that God would guard their coming and going, and be their refuge and their peace. We shall pray that God would surround every leader with wise counsel, that they would be humble and kind, patient and loving through their actions and words. We pray that their faith in God would be unwavering, strong, resolute, and firm.

We shall also be praying for all the youths in the country for all the forces of darkness, trying to mislead them into engaging in acts that are against the interest of the country. We shall join our hands and our voices with our Bible and Koran to pray fervently.

My faithful ones, the task before us is such that should be taken very seriously as we have always done in our previous programmes for we have indeed proved that with prayers and supplication nothing is impossible for God to do.

I am convinced that at the end of this 22 days of prayers, Nigeria shall be cleansed of all demonic impurities brought about by the EndSARS protest. I am also convinced that all the sponsors of the protest shall be exposed and put to shame Insha Allah.

It is our prayers that “Our Lord, pour down upon us patience, and make our steps firm and make us victorious over the disbelieving people.” Rabbanaa afrigh ‘alaynaa sabran wathabbit aqdaamanaa wansurnaa ‘alal qawmil kaafireen Surah Al-Baqarah ,verse 250.

Allah subhanahu has explained in His Book that He is the Helper of believers in this world and the next. He said, the Most High: “Indeed, we will support Our messengers and those who believe during the life of this world and on the Day when the witnesses will stand.” [Al-Qur’ an 40:51]

“And whoever is an ally of Allah and His Messenger and those who have believed – Indeed, the party of Allah – they will be predominant.” [Al-Qur’ an 5:56]

“Indeed, the ones who oppose Allah and His Messenger – those will be among the most humbled. Allah has written ‘I will surely overcome, I and My messengers.’ Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.” (Al-Qur’an 58:20-21).

Al-hamdu Lillaahi nahmaduhu wa nasta’eenahu wa nastaghfiruhu, wa na’oodhu billaahi min shuroori anfusinaa wa min sayi’aati a’maalinaa. Man yahdih Illaahu falaa mudilla lahu wa man yudlil falaa haadiya lahu. Wa ashhadu an laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu la sharika lahu wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasooluhu.

Amma ba’d (أما بعد). May yah di hillahu falaa mudhila lahoo, wa may yudhlil hu falaa haadiya lahoo. Ina asdaqal hadeethi kitaabullah, wa ahsanal hadyi hadyu muhammadin, wa sharal umoori muhda-thaa-tu-haa, wa kulla muhda-tha-tim bid’ah, wa kula bid’a-tin dhalaalah, wa kulla dhalaala-tin fin-naar. Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil ‘akhirati hasanatan waqina ‘adhaban-nar.

Rabbana wala tuhammilna ma la taqata lana bihi wa’fu anna waghfir lana wairhamna anta mawlana fansurna ‘alal-qawmil kafireen

“Assalamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh”

Bandits Lay Siege To Armed Forces Command And Staff College, Jaji

Avatar

Published

Some criminals, suspected to be bandits, are currently laying siege around the premises of Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC) located in Jaji, Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Their mission, according to some locals in the community who spoke to our correspondent during a telephone conversation, was to abduct some staff of the college and the communities around the area.

This is coming in less than two months after bandits stormed the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka, Mando, also in Kaduna and kidnapped no fewer than 39 students.

AFCSC is a training facility for the Nigerian Armed Forces, including the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Air Force and Nigerian Navy.

A resident of the area, who simply identified himself as Adamu, told Daily Trust via telephone that the bandits have always surrounded the institution while terrorising the communities around the college.

“It is only Allah that has been saving us. They (bandits) have always rustled cows in our communities. Military operatives do engage them in gun battle anytime they come around, that is why we don’t have major casualties yet,” Adamu said.

The Commandant of the college, Air Marshal Olayinka Alade, confirmed this on Wednesday in Abuja when he visited the Army Headquarters to brief Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Attahiru Ibrahim, on the development and other issues in the institution.

Alade said the institution has decided to launch impromptu searching and clearance operations in some communities where the bandits are operating around the college having informed General Officer Commanding 1 Division.

“There are some communities around the school that have developed and because it is like part of the college, maybe they are hiding under that cover, so some bandits are there. Because of that, there is collaboration with other institution’s heads in the college. Constantly, we try to conduct an impromptu searching. We conduct search and patrol from time to time.

“What we discovered now is that, not too far ahead, some communities… it is like all these bandits have made all that place their aim, so I discussed with GOC 1 Div. From time to time, we need to carry out clearance operations,” the AFCSC Commandant said.

The Commandant further disclosed that the bandits rustled some cows behind the college on Tuesday, April 13 – a development that led to gun duel between them and the military operatives.

He, however, did not disclose whether there was any casualty, noting that he came to brief the COAS so as not to be surprised if he hears anything subsequently.

According to him, “In fact, yesterday (Tuesday), I was told that some bandits came to come and rustle some cows just behind us. There was an exercise that was carried out by the NACI. They actually encountered these bandits, they had to exchange fire during the exercise.

“Those are the things we’re trying to ensure that we are not surprised if they have come that close, then, we need to sit tight and ensure we clear that place.”

Coalition Warns Anti-Vaxxers, Urges Nigerians To Disregard Fake News Of COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects

Avatar

Published

The National Vanguard on Covid-19 Administration and Advocacy has urged Nigerians to treat reports of side effects from the AstraZeneca jab as fake news, noting that some elements are out to frustrate the ongoing vaccination exercise.

This follows the claim of blood vomit by a woman in Kaduna after allegedly being administered the vaccine.

While the state government has vowed to investigate the report, the National Vanguard on Covid-19 Administration and Advocacy said the assertion is the handiwork of anti-vaxxers.

In a statement signed by its Director of Public Enlightenment, Samson Abu, on Saturday, the group, though, admitted potential side effects from the jab, added that some persons are out to sow fear in the minds of Nigerians.

Abu, therefore, appealed to Nigerians to disregard all fake news pertaining to the safety, efficacy and effects of the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to him, the supposed victim is an isolated case yet to be proven by any expert.

The group, however, urged Nigerians to continue to take the vaccine for their good and the safety of their loved ones around them

Read the full statement below:

The National Vanguard on Covid-19 Administration and Advocacy is appalled by the deployment of fake news by anti-vaccine elements in Nigeria in their bid to scare and discourage people from receiving the COVID-19 vaccine that is meant to protect against the Corona Virus and save lives.

The fake news, published with the headline “Woman vomits blood after taking COVID-19 vaccine” is a disingenuous attempt at creating a deepfake given the effort that was made to create the impression that one Hannatu Tanko was rushed to Gwamna Awan General Hospital in Kaduna State because she started vomiting blood after receiving the vaccine.

Interestingly, the same script was published by several blogs and a few undiscerning news sites without the publishers carrying out the necessary checks and without speaking with experts on what could have led to the woman’s condition.

The fake news also created the impression that there is coercion in the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine whereas people are voluntarily accepting the jab owing to their knowledge of how it protects one from catching the deadly virus. Such a desperate act could have only resulted from people that are keen on seeing the pandemic decimate humanity.

With more than half a million so far vaccinated, even if the account of the woman experiencing reactions to the vaccine were correct, the case would be an isolated one and the fact that sources claimed the woman is recovering confirms that the vaccine is safe while any unintended effect would be at worst temporary. We, therefore, find it unacceptable that the isolated and unproven instance is now being used by purveyors of fake news and anti-Vaxxers to discourage Nigerians from taking the vaccine. This is a huge disservice and unacceptable.

For the avoidance of doubts, experts’ views are required to confirm that what a person experiences after taking the jab is related to the vaccine. To do this, the experts would have ruled out that the symptoms exhibited by such are not caused by other underlying factors that coincidentally flared up at about the same time the person took their vaccine.

The National Vanguard on Covid-19 Vaccine Administration and Advocacy consequently warn detractors and anti-vaxxers in Nigeria that they have a responsibility to society to desist from sowing fear in the mind of the people especially when it is apparent that the fake news they are spreading has all the potential to hurt more people than save them.

We appeal to Nigerians to disregard all fake news about the safety, efficacy and effects of the COVID-19 vaccine and only based their decision to accept the jab or not on sound science, which would make them appreciate the benefits it offers. Nigerians, who truly value their wellbeing as the coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage the world, should make it a personal responsibility to take the vaccine for their good and the safety of their loved ones around them.
