I Didn’t Threaten First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu’s Life, Says Bauchi Islamic Preacher

Controversial Islamic preacher and the Chief Imam of Dusten-Tanshi Jumma’ah Mosque in Bauchi, Dr. Idris Abdul’aziz, has denied threatening the First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu...READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶

Abdul’aziz spoke during his first public preaching after his return from self-imposed exile.

During his preaching during the close of this year’s Ramadan commentary of the Holy Qur’an (tafsir) yesterday in Bauchi, he said: “I have no business with her whatsoever. I don’t even know her correct name.

I have never commented on her husband, the President, let alone herself. I don’t have anything to do with the wife of the President.

It was a smearing campaign orchestrated from Bauchi to cause disaffection between me and the wife of the President. Two groups are responsible for this.”

Abdu’aziz described the allegations as a smear campaign aimed at tarnishing his reputation.

I challenge those behind this to bring forward the authentic video or audio evidence where I issued a threat to the wife of the President,” he added.

A viral video surfaced in February where the Islamic cleric allegedly declared that Senator Tinubu deserved to die for her Christian faith.

He was also alleged to have described the Muslim/Muslim ticket that brought President Bola Tinubu to power as a scam.

Reacting to the threat during her visit to Bauchi to inaugurate some projects in the state around March, the First Lady said she was undeterred by the threat.

Alluding to the incident during the First Lady’s visit, Governor Bala Mohammed had described the threat as unacceptable.

He apologised to Mrs. Tinubu and assured her of safety in the state.

He also promised to take appropriate action against the cleric responsible for the threat.
