An organization for Nigerian Muslims has expressed their concern over the discovery of a huge sum on money allegedly belonging to the Nigerian government that was found in the private jet of a Christian pastor in South Africa last week.
$9.3 million in cash was found in Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor-owned private jet last weekend by South African authorities, according to Sahara Reporters.
The find has raised questions as to whether arms being purchased were really for the Nigerian army or if they were to be filtered to terrorist organizations like Boko Haram, which many Nigerian Muslims suspect to be a conspiracy against them in order to stir a Christian crusade in the region.
Regarding the incident, Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) director Professor Ishaq Akintola released a statement saying: “The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) is alarmed by this scandalous development.”
“In a country in which two religions are most prominent and are hot rivals of each other, here is the national leader of a religious group who also happens to be the president’s kinsman, an undisguised Muslim hater, a man with a belligerent disposition towards his Muslim neighbours, a man who has been threatening hell and brimstone over the Boko Haram saga,” the statement continued.
“Tie this to the Israeli connection, a country well known for its anti-Muslim and mass murder propensities. It raises more questions than answers.”
“Afterall, under-the-table assistance for Boko Haram has been noticed in the past. Where did the arms and food drops for Boko Haram by helicopters come from? Only the Israelis are capable of doing that. MURIC is shocked by the huge amount involved: $9.3 million! Conservatively, $1m is N163m. $9.3m is therefore N1,514,502,583.61 at the current exchange rate of N163 to $1,” Professor Ishaq Akintola added.Last Mod: 18 Eylül 2014, 15:25
