Force Public Relations Officer, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has called on clerics to enlighten their followers on the issue of blasphemy against prophets.



He stated this in a tweet on his verified handle while reacting to the killing of a Sokoto State resident, Usman Buda Mai, who was accused of degrading the personality of Prophet Muhammad.

Usman was beaten to death on Sunday over the alleged blasphemy, causing tension in parts of the state.

According to the Force spokesman, although blasphemy is an offense in the nation’s constitution, the law should not be enforced by members of the public.

He wrote, “Sokoto Command has been on it. Let’s wait for their report and action. But I think we need to call on our clerics to carry out enlightenment on this issue.
“Blasphemy, though an offense recognized by Nigerian law, is not subject to the whims of members of the public for enforcement”.
