The MMWG said in a statement signed by its national coordinator, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, that occurrences like this 'does not augur well' for a country in modern times where crisis ought to be quelled with light arms.
As citizens, they should know that if this country is made unstable, they too will bear the brunt of the hardship,' the MMWG said.
'MMWG calls on religious leaders and traditional rulers across all religious persuasions to watch the ugly trends and rise to the challenge by warning political stakeholders to stop moves likely to plunge the nation into calamity.
'We call on security agencies to urgently rise up to the challenge of the violent threat to our democracy, especially the inauguration of the second term of President Muhammadu Buhari,' MMWG added.
Similarly, against the backdrop of the ongoing Ramadan fast vis-a-vis incessant kidnappings around the country, the Ogun State chapter of the MMWG advised Muslims to be mindful of their safety while engaging in acts of worship, especially nocturnal-related undertakings and activities that may predispose them to activities of criminals.
In a statement signed by its coordinator, Alhaji Kamaldeen Akintunde, the MMWG in the state urged the authorities of the various Muslim institutions, groups and mosques to be proactive in ensuring safe environments for the faithful seeking to maximise the benefits of the glorious month.
MMWG, in a message signed by its National Coordinator, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, to commemorate Mawlid Nabiyy, the birthday of Holy Prophet Muhammad, also urged all security agencies connected with next year's elections to deal with troublemakers as 'the ambition of anyone or group is not worth the blood of any single soul.'
'MMWG, therefore, calls on all Muslims to imbibe the message of peace by refraining from any action capable of disrupting peace before, during and after the general election,' the group said.
On the issue of some state governors claiming that they do not have the capacity to pay, MMWG
blamed the development on what it called the failure of such governors to prioritise their expenditure.
The MMWG's call came on the heels of the decision of the Kwara State branch of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to blame Muslims for the midnight attacks on worshippers in Ilorin on Monday.
But the MMWG, in a statement by its National Coordinator, Ibrahim Abdullahi, described the CAN's claim as parochial and mischievous, saying information at the disposal of the general public and clarification made by the police had proven that the contrary was true as regards what happened in the early hours of January 1.
What happened was an insult and assault to both religious groups,' MMWG said.
