Stop accusing Igbo Muslims of bringing the Hausa ‘Almajiri terrorists’ to settle in our land for ‘phantom Islamisation agenda’, Igbo Muslim activist, Aishat Obi said on Thursday, in what appeared to be a response to allegations of conspiracy to islamise and kill the entire Igbo Christians.
Aishat, who embraced Islam in 2017, said it is not acceptable to blame the Igbo Muslims knowing fully well that not all the Hausas and Fulanis are Muslims.
“You can’t beat a child and ask him not to cry,” she asserted.
Posting on her Facebook handle, as monitored by Muslim News, a proudly Igbo Muslimah, formerly known as Blessing, said, though there are some bad persons among the fulanis, Hausas and Muslims, adding that, “there are also bad persons among the Igbo Christians. Every tribe, religion has its bad person.
“But attaching a religion’s name or the name of a whole tribe to a crime committed by a particular person or group of people in other to make others feel that a particular religion or tribe is bad is what I don’t like.
“All I want is for us to count Islam or the Igbo Muslims out of the problem we are having with anybody, group of people, or any tribe. Can’t we deal with the evil once without blackmailing and lying against others?
She called on all the good Christians and Muslims to speak out against evils irrespective of a person’s religion and tribe, until peace is restored in the land.
“I pray that our good Christians/Muslims brothers and sisters that are out to speak against evil irrespective of the person or people’s tribes and religion will continue to talk and pray until we all embrace peace,” she added.

I won’t stop asking or doing my findins until they give me answers.
I know we have bad people among the hausas, fulanis and Muslims all over likewise among the igbos, Christian and other tribes.
But attaching a religion name or the name of a whole tribe in a crime committed by a particular person or group of people in other to make others fill that. That particular religion or tribe is bad is what I don’t like.
For some of our igbo Christian brothers and sisters to be accusing we the igbo Muslims of bringing and helping the Hausa Almajiri terrorist jihadist Muslims to come and settle in our land in other to islamize and kill our own people is unacceptable. Knowing fully well that not all the hausas and Fulanis are Muslims.
You can’t beat a child and ask him not to cry 😭.
all I want is for us to count Islam or the Igbo Muslims away from the problem we are having with anybody, group of people, or any tribe.
Can’t we deal with the evil once without
blackmailing and liying against others?
I pray that our good Christians/Muslims brothers and sisters that are out to speak against evil inrespective of the person or people’s tribes and religion will continue to talk and pray until we all embrace peace.
Some of the reactions
“Why do you need to worry yourself? All their propagandas against Islam is even making sane minds accept Islam the more. How many have converted to Islam as a result of the direct consequences of the insults they heap on Muslims, the Prophet Muhammed, Quran and Islam? Observe keenly and see how Allah’s promise will come to pass. – Haruna Muhammad from Ilorin
“I like the write up about what is happening in the south east and south-south. It is sad that up till now, our brothers and sisters from the east have not come to terms with Islam as the fastest growing religion on Earth with over 2billion followers and counting#I STAND WITH MY BROTHERS AD SISTERS IN THE EASTERN AND THE SOUTH SOUTH OF NIGERIA.. MAY ALLAH KEEP PROTECTING YOU ALL. AMEEN. – Saleh Salisu, from Jos
