Nigerians have been warned to have no dealings with a new Islamic sect that recently emerged in Nasawara state.
A new religious sect known as Hakika has emerged in Toto Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, according to a report by Daily Post.

Nigerians have been warned to stay clear of the group with its members claiming to be Islamist saints and is currently occupying a large expanse of the forest in the area.

At a meeting in Lafia, Alhaji Isah Agwai, the Emir of Lafia, who is also the Chairman of the State Traditional Council of Chiefs, expressed dismay over the activities of the group and cautioned residents to be wary.

Speaking also, the Secretary General of the state Ja’martu Nasil Islam, Ahmed Ali, said the doctrines of the group were not Islamic.

“They have the kind of religious belief which I think is not Islam; they don’t believe in Quran, they don’t believe in any of the doctrines that Allah talked about in the Quran,” Ali said.

On his part, Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Security Matters, Brigadier General Muhammad Adika(retd), said: “It is believed that some of them are those running away from Zamfara State as a result of the pressure and have concentrated themselves in an expanse of land which is highly forested.”
