Spiritual leader of One Love Family, Sat Guru MaharaJi, has called on the President, Muhammadu Buhari to employ traditional means in order to tackle Boko Haram insurgency.
Maharaji gave the advice on Sunday in Ibadan at a press conference to mark the 35th anniversary of the One Love Family in Nigeria, Leadership reports.
According to the spiritual leader, this approach has become necessary in order to overcome the incessant killing of innocent people by the terrorist group.
He said traditional leaders have some powerful traditional deities that could help find solution to the Boko Haram insurgency within weeks.
“If the traditional leaders are involved in the process of addressing the issue, the crisis will soon be forgotten.
“The president needs to consult people such as me and other traditional leaders to break the myth surrounding the Boko Haram terrorist movement.
“They do not know the teachings of Islam and need to be dealt with traditionally because they are being used by some people and they use religion as a cover to create trouble,’’ Maharaji said
