He said “One thing we need to understand is that it (Jihad) is not the negative scenes that are displayed on the television screens. It Is not the the slanderous remark on the radio across the nation. Jihad is all about positive reaching out to people’s heart”. he made this statement while addressing the gentlemen of the press on MSSN-LASU 2017 JIHAD WEEK.
He furthermore said “What happens in Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine is not JIHAD. He said “Jihad week is an annual programme organized on the campus to orientate and sentitize the Muslims students across the campuses and faculties. The essence of it is to make “students religious and security conscious. He emphasised, that Jihad week serves as a threat to other progress stampeding groups on campus.

We let people know in 2015 what “The Emerald” is and then in 2016, The great Jihadist decided to pass “The Message” of “The Stranger” to be discussed by Veracious.
