Chief Imam’s Sallah Sacrificial Ram Stolen In Jos

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

The Chief Imam in Mista Ali community, Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State, Imam Abdulkadir has been left stranded as his sacrificial ram meant for the spiritual exercise was stolen on the eve of the Eid-el-Kabir.

The ram was said to have been stolen during a heavy rainfall in the area on the eve of the Ed-el-Kabir.

An Imam in the community, Haruna Yaqub, who could not control his feeling over the stealing, revealed this during the sermon, shortly after the two Raka’at prayers.

Yaqub who lamented the incident, described it as “insensitive”.

He said that the act showed that people lack the fear of God.

“The Ram of our Chief Imam, which he purposely bought to sacrifice, has been stolen in the night. We are really shocked by the incident. We were surprised to hear this story. This means that people are not God-fearing.

“It is scary that people have gone to the extent of stealing ram meant for religious activity,” Yaqub said.

He appealed to the people to be God-fearing and not engage in either stealing or any act of criminality.

He warned that everyone will account for their actions on earth and hereafter.

“It is high time people repented and took the path of Allah. It is not too late. People should stop committing bad things and act according to Allah’s commandments,” Yaqub added.
