There is anger on social media and in core Northern part of Nigeria over Afenifere’s comment that Sunday Igboho’s ordeal resembles that of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

Sahara Reporter had reported the story early this morning with angry Muslims launching a campaign asking Muslims to unfollow the online newspaper.

Sunday Igboho was arrested in Benin Republic as he attempted to escape from Nigeria to Germany with his German wife. The DSS attempted to arrest him over his activism and launching of campaign of seccession of South West from Nigeria.

The Afenifere’se statement has attracted a lot of backlash from Muslim faithfuls on social media who said the Prophet’s movement was given a wrong interpretation by the Yoruba group.
