The cleric said the move to tour and sensitise locals in counties is aimed at curbing the threat of radicalisation among Kenyan youth in some mosques, madrassas, schools and churches.
Already, the council has held sessions in the Coast, Garissa and Isiolo regions against false preaching and dangers of extremism.
The council urged law enforcers to continue inspecting suspected institutions where youth are being recruited to join terror groups.
