Dangerous Islamic Group ‘Gausiyya’ Has Emerged In Kaduna – El-Rufai

The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, has admitted that are security concerns in the state
following the emergence of a deadly Islamic group, “Gausiyya” in Markafi Local Government Area of the state.
The governor made acknowledged this in a radio interview on Saturday, while justifying the need to regulate religious activities in the state.
“We had a security report that a new Islamic organization called GAUSIYYA is springing up in one of our local government areas, precisely Makarfi,” the governor said.
“After studying the group’s activities, we understand that it is not a sect that we should allow to stay in our state. They preach contrary to the teachings of Islam and are gradually recruiting youth in the name of religion.
“We have decided to stop the group and their activities before they grew and become a problem for the state. Negligence is what brought about the Maitatsine in the 80’s and the Boko Haram insurgents we are now fighting.”
To curb the growth of such dangerous sects, El-Rufai said his government came up with the proposed law to regulate religious activities in the state.
“The state government will not be responsible for issuing any license to preaching bodies or a new preacher who just surfaces,” he said.
“A committee that will consist of clerics nominated by the Jama’atu Nasril Islam, JNI, and the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, will issue religious bodies permits depending on their faith.”
