CAN Youths demand arrest of Islamic cleric who called for killing of Tinubu’s wife

The Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria, YOWICAN, has called for the arrest and prosecution of a yet-to-be-identified Islamic preacher who allegedly said the wife of the president, Oluremi Tinubu should be put to death.

The cleric had been captured in a now viral video saying the Muslim/Muslim ticket of President Bola Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima was a scam.

The cleric averred that Mrs Tinubu, “being an infidel should be put to death as provided for in the Quran,” he, however, did not provide any chapter or verse of the Quran to support his claim.

“Now, Tinubu, his wife is an infidel. As an infidel, she is a leader among the infidels.

Reacting, YOWICAN in a communiqué issued at the end of its National Executive Council, NEC meeting held in Abuja on Friday, frowned at the outburst of the cleric.

The association emphasised the need for swift action to forestall further deterioration of the security situation in the country.

“The NEC is calling for the public prosecution of the Cleric and wishes to request that the said preacher should be restricted from preaching in Nigeria to serve as a deterrent to others”, it said.
