The Republican News was informed that a stripper performed in a night club wearing an Islamic head cover (hijab) at the FCT, Abuja, the capital of Nigeria and this prompted an unimaginable response from FCT Authority.
The Republican News was told that FCT authorities responded by demolishing the entire property valued at over 500million Naira.
How such action warranted such response in a secular country like Nigeria is something that bugles the minds of many Nigerians
Please don’t get me wrong, I do not subscribe to any form of religious insensitivity in a secular “federal arrangement” such as in Nigeria.
But by what authority or judicial pronouncement was that property destroyed?
Is there any law in Nigeria constitution or the FCT criminalizing nightlife or “stripping entertainment”?
Has Nigeria as a country become already an Islamic state under the current government that would warrant such abuse of the law in Abuja, which is not under Sharia law?
If the Minister got away with this, a very dangerous precedence is being set in Nigeria’s federal capital whose consequences would better be imagined.
Let’s hear your opinion.
