A prominent member of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Yakubu Yahaya Katsina today paid a courtesy call on that prominent Sunni cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi at his Bauchi residence.

The visit was to cap this year’s Unity Week, which rounded up yesterday in the capital city of Bauchi. Sheikh Yakubu Yahya was warmly received by his host, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi.

The Unity Week is an annual week-long event organized exclusively by the IMN, in which different scholars from different walks of life, irrespective of their schools of thought, Sunni or Shi’a and even Wahabi/Izala, are invited to deliver symposium topics that will foster unity within the Islamic fold. It usually holds between the 12th (which the Sunni sources believe to be the birthday of the Prophet [S]) and the 17th (widely held as the Prophet’s [s] birthday in Shiah fold) of the Islamic month of Rabi’ul Awwal.

It was the first time the National Unity Week was being held in Bauchi, hitherto held in Zaria, before the brutal destruction of the Husseiniyyah. This year’s event was attended by numerous scholars from within and outside the country.

Sheikh Yakubu wished his host a Happy Eid Maulud. In response, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi prayed for the quick and safe return of the leader of the Islamic Movement, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.
