Various tragedies occurring across the length and breadth of Nigeria have been attributed to sins committed to by Nation’s leaders.
Chief Imam of the Eastern Naval Command Headquarters, Calabar, Imam Muhammed Zakariyyah made this statement during his weekly Friday sermon.
He said Nigeria needs prayers to stop some of these unforeseen circumstances.
Using the recent plane crash in Lagos and the continuous attacks on innocent citizens by the Boko Haram terrorist sect in the North-Eastern part of the country, the Imam said, “part of what is happening in Nigeria today is as a result of sins committed at various levels by the leaders as well as the followers.
“Unless we go back to Allah before all these tragedies can stop.
“If the sinners are being punished, the innocent ones will share part of it, and that is what is happening in Nigeria today.
“Some people have done what Allah forbids, and when such things happen, the punishment that follows it will be shared by all and sundry.” the cleric said.
He prayed to God to guide the Nation’s leaders right with the fear of Allah and responsible followers.
