MURIC speaks on BBNaija Khalid’s sexual activities
The continued sexual relationship between Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemates, Khalid and Daniella, has sparked a reaction from the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC).
In an interview with Vanguard, its director, Ishaq Akintola, stated that he will be unable to make any Shari’a-compliant statements against Khalid because “whatever anybody is doing on BBNaija is haram.”
Khalid may be seen cuddling up to Daniella in a video that previously circulated online. They appeared to be having sexual contact.
Khalid, a Muslim who attends daily prayers in the BBNaija house, had previously voiced his distaste for alcohol.
Additionally, he had warned Daniella that he would have to break up with her if she kept abusing alcohol according to his religious beliefs.
Speaking on the housemate’s recent on-screen stunt, Akintola claimed that MURIC had requested that BBNaija be banned by the federal government.
He said it is sad that authorities and citizens do not pay attention when situations have an impact on the nation’s morality.
“I have no comment concerning Khalid. Whatever anybody is doing in BBNaija is haram, BBNaija itself; the whole of it. So, it’s not about the aspect of alcohol.
I was part of a group that went to court to stop BBNaija, but the system continues to encourage BBNaija, some of our people in the media, and journalists continue to encourage them because there’s money there.
Nigeria worships money and then we are destroying our youths, who are watching this show and there are some irresponsible parents, too, who are watching and encouraging their children to watch it.”
