The JNI Secretary General said this in Kaduna.

The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has called on the management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to stop mixing males and females during physical exercises at its orientation camps for corps members.

The group, an umbrella organisation for Islamic groups in Northern Nigeria, said mixing males and females violates Islamic tenets and called on the authorities concerned to put members of different sex in different camps.

The JNI Secretary General, Khalid Abubakar, said this at the end of a peace and unity conference for Muslim scholars in Kaduna State on Thursday in preparation for the annual Ramadan lecture expected to kick off at the weekend.

Mr. Abubakar called on the NYSC to respect the decency and chastity of female corps members during physical exercises and other activities at the orientation camps, and provide alternative camps for female Muslim corps members.
