SaharaReporters confirmed that the cleric, whose identity could not be ascertained by Legit.ng at the time of filing this report, therefore, averred that the wife of the president, "being an infidel should be put to death as provided for in the Quran."

He, however, did not provide any chapter or verse of the Quran to support his claim.

"Now, Tinubu @officialABAT, his wife is an #infidel. Even as an infidel, she is an 'oga' (a leader) among the infidels. Even her, God's judgement says she must be killed.. She's a pastor... Leaders of infidels (Christianity), Allah says they must be killed," The Muslim cleric said.
