The top Sunni cleric and an expert in Qur’anic exegesis, Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi has said that Nigerian government is sitting on the precipice of God’s wrath if it fails to release Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.
He made this declaration when discussing with other top scholars at the mourning session of the head of Tijjaniyyah order, Sheikh Isyaka Rabiu in Kano, who died last week.
According to Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, “it is a calamity to unjustifiably detain a man of God,” noting that in this instance, even the secular courts in the land had ordered for the release of Sheikh Zakzaky.
“Sheikh Zakzaky is additionally ill in detention, and it will only be fair and just to release him to attend to his ailing health.”
The foremost Tijjaniyyah scholar said God is just and doesn’t spare unjust rulers. He therefore called on the Buhari-led government to forthwith release Sheikh Zakzaky to spare the country from the wrath of God.
