A Sokoto-based popular Islamic Preacher, Bello Yabo, said he prays that bandits who threatened to Kidnap President Buhari and governor El-Rufai would be successful.
Newsonline reports that Bello Yabo said it would be a good way to teach President Buhari, and Governor El-Rufai that they have failed the country woefully.
Bello Yabo who lamented that the president, Muhammadu Buhari has failed the country, said it was only when the president and other top leaders experience what victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train are experiencing in the bush that they would feel the impact of their failure.
In a viral video, the Sokoto-based Islamic Preacher, Yabo, made the prayer in reaction to the comment of Shehu Garba, Senior Special Adviser to President Buhari.
The visible Islamic Preacher also advised the bandits to change their operations from abducting ordinary citizens to those in positions of authority.
Garba Shehu while reacting to the video of bandits flogging victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train and their threat to abduct Buhari and El-Rufai, called the threat propaganda.
Garba Shehu described the threat thus, “terrorist activity using propaganda and the use of violence to force governments to accept or submit to political demands is not new all over world.”
Reacting to Shehu’s comment, Yabo prayed for the bandits to effect their threat and release” innocent victims”.
He said, “I pray they kidnap you, Garba Shehu, and demonstrate as propaganda.”
“We are praying for you kidnappers. May God grant you success in carrying out your threats to kidnap those people. But please release the innocent people in captivity.
“If these were the kind of people you have been abducting all this while, we wouldn’t have bothered ourselves. We would instead pray and bless you because they have become a disaster [to us].
“These are people who promised heaven and earth, and now they have the opportunity but became incompetent. Take them to the bush and flog them, instead of humiliating innocent citizens who are striving to make ends meet.
“And please make good your threats, and we will support you with prayers.”
