A Nigerian man has taken to social media to berate, activist, Aisha Yesufu who had been at the forefront of the #EndSARS protest.
According to the unidentified man, Aisha’s involvement in the protest against police brutality and extra judicial killings is a sin, and against the precepts of Islam.
The man shared an iconic photo of Aisha Yesufu, protesting with other #EndSARS protesters, and he marred it with a red sign, while criticizing her for standing up for justice.
He wrote on the photo, “Don’t be deceived by the hijab-wearing revolutionary. Islam is free from her actions.”
However, the unidentified man was called out by many Nigerians who found his statement offensive and uncalled for.
When another Muslim man reached out to him, he reportedly said “Islam is against protests” except when it’s Jihad to sight in the cause of Allah”.
