The Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria (SCSN) has urged President Bola Tinubu to severe the country’s relations with Israel until it respects international law and the rights of Palestinians.

The council also stressed the need for Nigeria to mobilise aid to assist the people of Palestine.

At a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, SCSN President, Sheikh AbdurRasheed Hadiyyatullah, described the ongoing crisis in Palestine as a genocide.

He said besides its criminality and lack of humanity, it shows the failure of global institutions established after the Second World War to protect humans against tyranny.

He criticised the United States for vetoing a United Nations Resolution that called for humanitarian pauses in the war to facilitate passage of aid to Gaza.

Hadiyyatullah said the international community failed to address the root of the conflict largely because the United States has consistently offered unconditional support to what he called Zionist occupiers of Palestine.

“The Federal Government, on behalf of the teeming Muslims and Christians and people of conscience in Nigeria, should, as a matter of urgency, provide relief materials to the besieged Palestinians who are in dire need of food, clothing, medicine and other essentials,” Hadiyyatullah added.
