New Pressure For Arrest Of Islamic Cleric Who Placed Fatwa On Remi Tinubu – Lifestyle Nigeria

More pressure has emerged for the arrest of the Islamic cleric who issued a fatwa for the killing of First Lady, Remi Tinubu for being a Christian and an infidel.

In the latest development, the Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has raised the alarm and called for urgent action against the Islamic preacher.

In a viral Update, the cleric condemned the Muslim/Muslim ticket of President Bola Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima, labeling it as a scam. Shockingly, he went further to declare that Mrs. Tinubu, as an “infidel,” should be put to death in accordance with the Quran, without providing any specific reference to support his claim.

Reacting to the cleric’s incendiary remarks and the fatwa on Remi Tinubu, YOWICAN in a communiqué following its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja at the weekend strongly condemned the cleric’s statements and called for swift action to address the situation before it escalates further.

Expressing concern over the potential impact on national security, YOWICAN emphasized the urgency of prosecuting the cleric and urged authorities to restrict him from preaching in Nigeria as a deterrent to others.

. reports that the call from the group follows earlier condemnations from several quarters including Senator Shehu Sani who rebuked the Islami Cleric over his call for the killing of the First Lady for being a Christian. Meanwhile, the security agencies have not reacted to the development.
