During the Friday pre-Khutbah, Ameer of Potiskum Malam Mustapha Lawan Nasidi called on people of Potiskum not to give in to fear or intimidation and leave the town in the face of the recent terrorists attack on the city.
After the Ashura and school bombing and attacks in Potiskum and extra-judicial killings and cold blood massacre, there were reports of people fleeing the town, mostly out of false alarm.
“Do not leave your hometown just because some bunch of sponsored terrorists were being sent on killing mission. On our part we stay put, firm and resolute. Employ the best of terrorist cells and killer machines, for death comes only once and we die only when God ordained”.
Malam Mustapha Nasidi also reacted to report of planned attack on the forthcoming Arba’een Trek saying, “Arba’een Trek is inevitable. No brutal force or gun can stop it. We are calling to the way of Allah, while yours is to kill and shed innocent blood. Sooner or later, you will regret your action”, he said.
