FCT: MURIC faults Wike’s security deal with Israel


The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has expressed strong opposition to the plans of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesome Wike, to partner with Israeli security experts to address security challenges in Abuja. MURIC, through its Executive Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, released a statement in Abuja on Thursday, outlining its concerns about the collaboration.

According to MURIC, such a collaboration with Israel might worsen Nigeria’s security problems, potentially escalating them from a local crisis to an international conflict involving global intelligence agencies such as MOSSAD (Israel’s secret spies), the American CIA, and the Russian SVR and FSB. The organization argued that involving Israel could lead to Nigeria becoming a center of rivalry for these international espionage outfits.

MURIC stated that the decision to collaborate with Israel might be influenced by misconceptions, particularly among Nigerian Christians, who perceive Israel as a Christian state. However, MURIC highlighted that Israel recognizes only Judaism as its religion, and there have been instances of religious tensions and attacks within Israel itself, including recent incidents where Jews spat on Christian pilgrims in Jerusalem.

The organization criticized Israel’s actions at the United Nations, where it has ignored several resolutions and faced condemnation for its aggression against Palestinians. MURIC asserted that a collaboration with Israel, which it referred to as a “terrorist state,” is not suitable for Nigeria’s security partnership. The statement also suggested that Wike should take the Israelis to Rivers State instead.

MURIC’s statement reflects its concerns about potential religious and geopolitical implications of collaborating with Israel on security matters within Nigeria.
