Sanusi expressed sadness over hate messages by clerics whom he said were hiding under the sanctity and immunity of the holy places to set one part of the society against the other.

The monarch described such preaching as totally against the ideals of Islam.

He warned against the act in his sermon at the ultra-modern mosque of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State on Friday.

The Emir also led the first Friday prayers in the mosque which he inaugurated.

The inauguration of the mosque was said to be one of the activities that marked the institution’s 26th convocation and 35th anniversary.

He said, “Muslim clerics, and indeed all Muslims, should preach peace among the adherents and work to achieve peace with members of other religions.”

Sanusi also called for unity among members of the two major religions in Nigeria, saying it was the panacea for peace in the country.
