The Kano State government has placed a ban on Abduljabbar Nasiru Kabara.

Kabara, is a controversial Kano-based Islamic preacher.

He was banned for alleged violence-inciting sermons.

The mosque of the factional leader Qadiriyya sect located in Gwale area was also shut down by the Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje-led government.

Speaking on Wednesday, February 3, Kano Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba, said the decision to ban the controversial cleric was to give peace a chance and curb what looks like a brewing religious crisis.

Kabara was accused of insulting the companions of Holy Prophet Muhammad.

He was also said to have been involved in a dagger-drawn clash with the Sunni Muslim clerics in the state.

Among other reasons, Kabara was also said to have openly shown interest and affiliation with the Shiite group in the state, with his comment said to have been putting the peace of northern commercial city at risk. The state government has ordered the state Commissioner of Police and other security agencies to ensure compliance to the government’s decision.
