The director of the Islamic group Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Prof. Ishaq Akintola has reacted to the trending intimate moment between Big Brother Naija housemates Khalid and Daniella.
Daniella and Khalid made headlines earlier in the week, after they had intercourse under the duvet on Monday night, while other housemates, were already asleep; an act that sparked mixed reactions on social media.
Reacting in a conversation with Vanguard, the MURIC director said he cannot make any Shari’a pronouncement on Khalid because “whatever anybody is doing in BBNaija is haram.”

Khalid, the Level Up contestant is Muslim.
Here is what the director had to say;
“I have no comment concerning Khalid.
Whatever anybody is doing in BBNaija is haram, BBNaija itself; the whole of it.
So, it’s not about the aspect of alcohol or whatever.”
The speech of the Islamic cleric reads further;
“I was part of a group that went to court to stop BBNaija, but the system continues to encourage BBNaija, some of our people in the media, and journalists continue to encourage them because there’s money there.
“Nigeria worships money and then we are destroying our youths, who are watching this show and there are some irresponsible parents, too, who are watching and encouraging their children to watch it.”
