This act has been widely condemned across board.
See reactions from Nigerians:
@AyoBakonle: “It is unacceptable & totally irresponsible for Muslim congregations to be responding to govt effort with violence. 1st was Katsina, then Jos, now Lagos. We’ve seen Pastors arrested. Mosques shouldn’t be different. This is the time for Muslim leaders to speak strongly against this.”
They tend to argue when Christians say their religion is a religion of violence. We’ve seen how pastors were arrested quietly in the last few days. None of their members laid their hands on any official.
@DEUXSVELTE: Lock them inside after 14days open door for survivors to go to jail.
@Uncle_Phillips: I’m secretly praying for the lockdown to end before Ramadan starts. This is because the chances of a civil disobedience and violent reaction will triple.
@johnpistolance: When we say one religion loves violence, they will say we’ve come again. Churches where pastors were arrested did you hear any case of the members attacking the officers??
The question is WHY ALWAYS THEM.. I think it’s time we ask these folks what exactly is their problem, maybe we can proffer a solution to it… It dosen’t have to end in violence.
