Buhari To Honour 83-Year Old Islamic Cleric

Mallam Abdullahi Abubakar,

President Muhammadu Buhari is set to honour an 83-year-old Islamic Cleric, Abdullahi Abubakar, who recently shielded and saved about 300 Christians from attackers in Nghar Yelwa village of Barikin Ladi Local Government of Plateau state.
The State Governor, Simon Lalong, who dropped this hint in Jos, the state capital, at the opening of a three-day peace and security conference organized by the State Peace Building Agency, said that President Buhari had asked him to bring the Cleric to Abuja for a national honour and presidential handshake.
“It was only God who knows why he (Imam) did it at that age, it is now for us to study what he did and to also see how we would do to maintain peace.
“Let’s us use his example to maintain peace not only in Plateau, but in Nigeria, because what he did that time not only saved the people of Barikin Ladi, not only of Plateau state but the whole of this country.”
