Igbo Progressive Coalition in a statement made available on social media noted that;
“We want to pass a very big message to some of our Igbo brothers who has joined the Islamic faith not to bring the Norther pattern of Islam into our land but to follow the Yoruba method of worship.
“We are not against anyone practicing any religion he or she deem fit but we will be against anyone who will come into our land to kill our brothers and sisters all in the name of blasphemy.
This has not happened before in the history of Igboland and will never happen because we are not going to tolerate it.
“Yoruba Muslims are peace loving people and we encourage our brothers who has joined the faith to worship God peacefully and not to use it to bring abominable acts into our land all the in name of religion.
“We are not stopping anyone from worshipping whatever they deem fit as it is their fundamental human rights as enshrined in the constitution.
“Any Igbo man who uses the guise of religion to kill any of his brothers shall face what he or she shall never imagined from us. Worship your God peacefully and avoid killing of one another. In Igbo land we place humanity above religion because we value human life and does not have the power to take a life we cannot create.”
