The National Council of Muslim Youths (NACOMYO) has warned all Muslims to be security conscious at mosques during the Id’el Fitri celebration as they end Ramadan this week.

The appeal was made on Tuesday in a statement issued by the council’s national president, Kamal’ddin Akintunde.

Mr. Akintunde said this call came on the heels of the reports of bomb blasts and attacks in some parts of Nigeria, coupled with the Inspector General of Police statement, alerting the nation of cross border movement and activities of the insurgents, which NACOMYO believes can undermine or endanger smooth celebration of the Eid-el-fitri.

“NACOMYO implores Muslims and other Nigerians to be security conscious at Eid praying grounds, just as it emphasizes the need by our security agencies to be alive to their responsibilities and do the needful at the various praying centres and other crowded areas,” the group stated.
