Police withdraw wanted notice for popular Cleric after NSA Ribadu’s intervention


Following the intervention of the National Security Adviser (NSA), Malam Nuhu Ribadu, for the Bauchi-based Islamic Cleric, Malam Idris Abdulaziz with emphasis on peaceful coexistence, Bauchi State Police Command has withdrawn the wanted notice placed on him over contempt of court.

However, on Tuesday 9th April 2024, Commissioner of Police Bauchi State Command, CP Auwal Musa Mohammad, in his efforts and dedication to promoting peaceful coexistence and harmonious relations among the figures in the State, spearheaded a peace pact between Malam Idriss Abdulaziz and the Government of Bauchi State at the Police State headquarters.



He expressed his unequivocal appreciation to the Governor of Bauchi State Sen. Bala Mohammed Abdulkadir, for honouring the call of NSA and other relevant stakeholders for the peace accord and maintained that the written commitment that was signed would be judiciously observed by the parties concerned.

Malam Idris Abdulaziz Dutsen Tanshi should understand that while he enjoys the right to freedom of speech, he should not use the pulpit as a platform to insult or make derogatory and abusive statements against preachers/clerics.

He should strive to foster an atmosphere of peace and harmony within the community through his preaching, regardless of differences in opinion or religious beliefs. It is, therefore, imperative that he respects constituted authority henceforth.

The Command stressed, “We hope that this marks the beginning of a new era of cooperation and understanding in Bauchi State.”
