Angry Governor orders public beating of Islamic cleric (Video)

In the video, the governor, who was addressing sympathisers, said, “We can all pray for the repose of the deceased from mosques within our areas. May Allah forgive her shortcomings and grant her eternal peace, so let’s get a cleric to pray for us.”

When the yet-to-be-identified man came forward, the governor became furious, saying, “Did I talk to you? Are you an Imam?”

He then ordered the security personnel to clamp down on him.

“Slap him, I say slap him very well,” Bago ordered, “Oya, go and arrest him, deal with him very well, and bring him back”.

“Everybody should be careful with me, because I can sweet and bitter at the same time,” the governor said amidst cheers and applause from the sympathisers who were seated.

He subsequently passed the microphone to another cleric to offer the prayers.

The governor, it was learnt, also ordered the arrest of another yet-to-be identified cleric.
