- Nigerian Muslim cleric, Sheikh Sani Yahaya Jingir, has reacted to the ban on public prayer gatherings to curb the spread of the coronavirus
- Jingir said the deadly virus which is spreading in Nigeria is a lie and a conspiracy to stop Muslims
- The cleric went on to describe the global pandemic as a western conspiracy targeted against Muslim faithful
Following the escalating spread of coronavirus in Nigeria, Sheikh Sani Yahaya Jingir, the leader of Izala Muslim sect, has described the global pandemic COVID-19 as a western conspiracy and international deceit against Muslims.
The Nigerian cleric who disclosed this in a sermon restated that the deadly coronavirus was a lie. He insisted that COVID-19 was a conspiracy meant to stop Muslim faithful from taking part in their religion's rites.
He further noted that if the ragging virus is not as effective as the fire that could not burn Prophet Ibrahim then COVID-19 is a lie, adding that even a professor claims coronavirus is not true.
Jingir also questioned how many graves of coronavirus patients and victims in hospitals have been seen.
He said: “Is the virus as effective as fire that could not burn Prophet Ibrahim (AS)? Then the virus is a lie. Whatever people have to say, they should say the truth. A professor has said it was a lie.
“President of Turkey declared that they shouldn’t stop the Juma’at congregation because of Coronavirus, because they don’t believe in the virus, they only believe in Allah.
“Another country in Europe, also took the same path. Ask United States President Donald Trump. They are just unveiling Coronavirus that was written in a book 39 years ago. How many graves of Coronavirus victims have you seen and how many of the victims have you seen in hospitals?
“We were witnessed to the Cholera epidemic in Kano and we saw how massive burials were done. We saw the graves, but where are those of Coronavirus victims?”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Nigerian Muslim cleric, Imam Ali-Agan, spoke against the government’s move to stop public prayer gatherings to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
The cleric while speaking in an interview with PRNigeria, said that the government should not make such a move because Muslims are naturally immune to coronavirus due to their lifestyle of always covering their bodies, avoiding handshake and frequent ablutions.
Similarly, Reverend Father Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN) has given his reaction to the dreaded disease called coronavirus. During a prayer session held on Wednesday, March 18, in Enugu, Mbaka called on Nigerians not to respond to the global pandemic with panic, adding that fear itself has torment.
The famous Christian cleric assured Nigerians that despite the fact no cure has been found for the virus, God has a solution if only people will call on him in prayer, since, according to him, the maker of the universe has supremacy over all human affairs and problems.
