Islamic Cleric Apologises To Oluremi Tinubu Over Killing Comments

The Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has called for the immediate arrest and public prosecution of Muslim Cleric Idris Abdulaziz Dusen Tenshi.

The cleric was accused of inciting violence by allegedly calling for the killing of Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the wife of the President, labeling her an “infidel” due to her Christian faith.

This demand was made at the conclusion of the 2024 National Prayer Day and the 1st Quarter National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of YOWICAN, held at the National Christian Centre in Abuja, on Friday.

Belusochukwu Enwere, Chairman of YOWICAN, voiced the collective stance of the council in a communiqué, emphasizing the urgent need for government and security agencies to take action.

The communiqué partly stated, “NEC is calling for the immediate arrest of the Muslim Cleric (Idris Abdulaziz Dusen Tenshi) who has called for the killing of the wife of the President, Sen Oluremi A Tinubu for being a Christian. Describing her as an infidel.

“The NEC is calling for the public prosecution of the cleric and wish to request the said preacher should be restricted from preaching in Nigeria to serve as a deterrent to others.
