“The Nigerian masses should resort to only one term,” he added, “protect our lives, and we will come out to vote; let us be killed, and we will not come out to vote, because elections are all you people know.”


Senator Saidu Muhammed Dansadau, the chairman of the mosque committee, said in a statement to Service that the committee had suspended the embattled imam due to his sermon ‘inciting public outrage.’

The statement read, “I am informing you that you have been suspended from leading prayers in the Apo Legislative Quarters Mosque from today being April 2nd, 2022 until further notice.

“The decision was taken out of the inciting Friday sermon you ( Sheikh Nuru Khalid) delivered on April 1st, 2022; where you advised people not to vote come 2023 general elections unless politicians respond to some critical questions.
