- A Nigerian Muslim man, Kolawole Muideen, has narrated how he completely dissociated himself from a fellow Muslim who kicked against the EndSARS protest
- Muyideen said the individual posted a viral picture of Aisha Yesufu on the protest grounds and condemned it
- Social media users were seen reacting to Muyideen’s narration
A Nigerian man on Facebook identified as Kolawole Muyideen Oreoluwa has recounted his encounter with a fellow Muslim brother who kicked against the ongoing protest against police brutality in the country.
According to Muyideen, the drama between them started after the person in question posted a viral photo of activist, Aisha Yessufu, from the grounds of the protest and condemned the actions of Muslim youths in the country.
Muyideen said he was quick to challenge the individual and remind him of Jihad (the act of fighting for justice in the cause of Allah), and how it is not any different from what Muslims in the ongoing protest are doing.
“I asked him what is Jihad? he responded that Fighting in the cause of Allah by the rulings of Allah. I asked further that is Killing of Muslim brothers by the SARs and calling to end SARs a Jihad cause or not? He responded by referring me to read Quran chapter 9.”
Rounding up his narration, Muyideen said he told the acquaintance off and made it clear that he is dissociating himself.

Oluwasina Ismaeel Odulana commented:
"The most fitting action is not to disassociate yourself from an ignorant brother, but rather to enlighten him having realised that he is grossly misguided and miseducated but rather to exercise the patience to teach and enlighten him."
Ibrahim Umoru commented:
"I would not blame you for outrightly cutting him off as such people can be a real mess in relationships. Very myopic indeed."
Munirat Ogunlayi commented:
"Is there anything wrong in a Muslim expressing her/his mind?"
Afouda Baba Agbalagba commented:
"Like I said national discourse like this will expose the true character of many social media friends!"
