A popular chief imam in Nigeria has prayed for the successful abduction of said corrupt leaders and the release of innocent citizens
Yabo, who said the prayer while reacting to Shehu’s comment which states “terrorist activity using propaganda and the use of violence to force governments to accept or submit to political demands is not new all over world.”
Reacting to Shehu’s response, the imam accused him of being insensitive to the victim’s troubles, Yabo prayed for Shehu to fall into the hands of the kidnappers, “I pray they kidnap you, Garba Shehu, and demonstrate as propaganda.”
“We are praying for you kidnappers. May God grant you success in carrying out your threats to kidnap those people. But please release the innocent people in captivity.
“If these were the kind of people you have been abducting all this while, we wouldn’t have bothered ourselves. We would instead pray and bless you because they have become a disaster [to us].
“These are people who promised heaven and earth, and now they have the opportunity but became incompetent. Take them to the bush and flog them, instead of humiliating innocent citizens who are striving to make ends meet.
“And please make good your threats, and we will support you with prayers.”
