Muhammadu Bashar, emir of Gwandu, says homosexuality is one of the reasons for insecurity in the country.
Bashar, who is chairman, Kebbi council of chiefs, said this while addressing Muslim faithful after the Eid-el-Kabir prayer in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital, on Sunday.
He said Nigerians have been ignoring God’s commands and adopting satanic behaviours as homosexuality, rape and lesbianism.
“The society today is bedevilled by cases of rape, homosexuality, lesbianism, kidnapping and rampant killings which resulted into the present insecurity Nigeria is faced with,” he said.
“I give glory to God for giving us the opportunity to witness another Sallah. The present ills in our society is also due to indiscipline and too much love for material wealth.”
He said the country would continue to be unstable until Nigerians stop committing sin against God.
The emir also charged the people to give to the needy, adding that those who were able to sacrifice animals during the Sallah should endeavour to share the meat with those who could not afford.
In 2014, President Goodluck Jonathan had passed a law banning homosexuality in Nigeria.
