An Islamic sect, Izalatul Bidi’ah Wa’iqamatul Sunnah, JIBWIS, has said that its radio and television stations would begin transmission this week.
National Chairman of the sect Sheik Bala Lau, said in Katsina over the weekend that the stations are located in Abuja.
Lau who was speaking at seminar organised by the sect for Islamic preachers, said the stations were innovations of the sect to propagate Islam.
According to him, the two stations were set up through contributions by wealthy individuals and named “Manara stations”.
Lau explained that the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III will commission the station on Wednesday.
The national chairman who spoke on the activities of the sect, said the sect was working to provide more assistance to orphans in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states.
He said the sect would take care of their feeding, clothing as well as sponsor them to acquire western and Islamic education.
Lau lamented over the increased number of Almajirai roaming the streets in northern states, pointing out that about 12 million Almajirai needed food and clothing.
He emphasized the need for wealthy individuals to rise towards assisting the needy and orphans in the society.
