Girl-child Marriage: Yerima Should Be Flogged And Jailed – Cleric

Founder of Omega Ministries, Auchi, Edo State, Apostle Johnson Suleiman, has called for the arrest of Senator Ahmed Yerima over his encouragement of girl-child marriage in the country.

Irked by recent comments credited to the former Zamfara State governor, Suleiman said: “The issue is that Senator Yerima should be arrested. When he got married to an under-aged girl in Egypt, he was accompanied there by some shameless senators. But in case they have forgotten, Islam says when you marry a girl under 18 years you do not touch her until she is 18 years.

“It is when she is 18 years that you will have access to her body. Is he saying he has not touched that little girl now? They are just being ritualistic, satanic and barbaric. Some of these senators are just occultists.

“Even if Yerima can give his daughter out at age 13, does that justify it? I will not be surprised if a man like Yerima gives his daughter out at 10 years. He definitely has no respect for womanhood,” the cleric stated while speaking with newsmen recently.”

Suleiman also took a swipe at other senators who supported Yerima during the girl-child marriage controversy, describing them as paedophiles.

“What they did is simply a reflection of their private lifestyles as paedophiles. ..Nigerians are bleeding. It is sad. The other time I heard of a senator from Oyo State who said he mistakenly voted yes instead of no for the girl-child marriage.

“At that level he does not know the difference between his right hand and left hand. He should be flogged and jailed because who knows how many other bills he had voted for instead of against and vice versa,” the cleric said.

  1. This sulaiman does’nt know what he is talking about,I don’t think you are a muslim bcos there is nowhere you are told that a girl should be 18 b4 touching her, as soon as a girl is matured she is ripe for marriage. They should’nt allow under 18 to get married,but they can be befriending them and even impregnate under 12. You better think and contribute possitively to our society.

      • @eguvwese daniel,

        You did not ask me but yes WE ARE IN SUPPORT OF YARIMA, NO ONE CAN INTIMIDATE US (MUSLIMS) WITH ANY NONSENSE LAW. IF YOU BRING YOUR LAW, WE WILL BRING OUR LAW AFTER ALL NIGERIA’S LEGAL SYSTEM CONSIST OF COMMON (ENGLISH) LAW, ISLAMIC (SHARIA) LAW AND THE CUSTOMARY (TRADITIONAL) LAW.

        People think they can simply intimidate us with all this crap utterances, it will not work. If you think we are so daft & dumb to allow ourselves to be influences by all that we read in the books or listen to on TV, radio or internet or even dump our beliefs its very unfortunate.

        The pastor should go & face his congregation or when did a pastor start sitting over the affairs of Islam?

        Whatever Yarima said should be left for the Islamic scholars to deliberate over based on the Islamic references, which is always the Quran & Hadith.

        Johnson Suleiman cant just jump out from his scrunchy hole seeking for recognition & attention from the public based on other people faith.

      • @eguvwese daniel,

        You did not ask me but, yes I am in support. people like Jonhson Suleiman & his cohort think they can intimidate the Muslims. After all Nigerian’s legal system is based on the Common (English) law, Islamic (sharia) law and the customary (traditional) law. These are the only three (3) legal system that I know exist in Nigeria, if apostle Johnson Suleiman has another source that he base his statement he should please restrict that to his domain and not the Islamic world.

        Everyone simply wakes up from his/her frustrated slumber & thinks he can make cheap utterances to get fame.

        Whatever concerns the Islamic world should be left for the Islamic Scholars who have a better & much grounded knowledge to deliberate over it & not one lunatic who believe position should be used to intimidate people simply because they are not of the same faith with you.

        Islam & Muslims the world over are guided by the Quran & the Hadith & not by any phony thought, fictitious & imaginary view of people.

        We have never lived in oblivion and may Allah (SWT) never make us to live as such. You can’t intimidate us and we will stand by whatever Yerima said unless proven contrary by the Quran & or the Hadith.

    • Apostle suleman when those Who brought the bill of Same sex marriage where were you? We had no hear you comment about that & is the one that the two religion are against. You prepare a girl of 12years to go on Prostitution than marriage. Or they should made to be. Baby. Making industry is better than be married legally? Please apostle. Think again & apology to yerima.

    • I hope apostle suleman one day we will not hear that a teenager has been rape or pregnant ed in your church. Because so many of such has happen.

  2. This information is fake; as far as I’m concerned my father (apostle Johnson suleman) cannot and will never grant an interview; he’s too busy 4 dat, and for you dat r insulting him my father was a Muslim b4 he gave his life to Christ and my grandfather is an Alhaji; he knows everything about Islam; and d truth is dat child marriage is wrong and as long as a lady is not up to 18yrs she’s not matured and 4 u to marry a 13yrs old girl it shows how undisciplined and wicked you are… Senator Yerima is a fool

    • Wndaful comment, nyc one @zeenat n co. @those opposing zeenat yeah u say ur mind n let d air blow…married in islam is mention as well as in bible bt wat i wnt u people 2 understand is that u’re governed under constitution which allow each person 2 practice wat eva religion he feel like.. Islam stated it dat whn a girl reached maturity stage she is ready 2 riped. Why blamed on senator yerima 4 observing wat is rightful 2him??? now tell d Story Of COZA CHURCH IN ABJ,EDO n Lagos, pastors a days raped n involved in much sexual scandals. Pastor sulaiman o wat eva u call ur self..mind wat u say., preach n get bulk 4ur pocket n let our man rest pls.. 4ur information yerima’s wife gv birth 2a Baby boy. Masha Allah, Alhamdulillah

    • Christianity is now a religion that support same-sex marriage. All the Coutries that legalised Homosexual and Lesbianizim are christian coutries. So that animal pastor that apart from fornicating with their chuch members they don’t know anythig. Vatican or any church in this world the story is the same. They should cover their faces with SHAME. You don’t have moral justification to accuse Yarima. Go and take census of ASHAWOS in Nigeria u will know which religion they belong to!!!

  3. This so-called Apostle has displayed his ignorance towards the final, truth and absolute religion of the world, Islam. Islam did not fixed any age of marriage but once a lady is considered to be matured physically coupled with the commencement of menstruation, she is ripe for marriage. Islam is the only solution to all problems of humanity, especially rape and other social vices within the society. Because of the modern church laws which are unbiblical, one is not allowed to marry young lady of his choice, but is allowed to friend any girl irrespective of her age and even have children with her out of wedlock. That is why the rate of rape is too high in the non Islamic countries especially to Pastors and Church fathers than that of Islamic ones. I don’t know where this so-called Apostle got his information, as it never exist not only in the Holy Qur’an but in the Holy Bible as well. Any way even if Mr. Joseph happen to be Muslim before, it is not guaranteed for him to have knowledge of Islam as it is base on origin or inheritance and base on this information, he must be among the ignorant and illiterate of their religion to the highest order. However, it is worthy to note that marriage is part of sharia and sharia in totality revealed in the Holy Bible 600 years before its revelation to prophet Muhammad( SAW). Read the following verses on death penalty and other forms of sharia in the Bible: Exodus 21:23-25, Leviticus 20:9, Leviticus 24:17, Exodus 21:12, Mark 7:10, Revelation 13:10 etc. Therefore who ever condemn sharia is not only displaying his ignorance about his religion, but rather he rejected his Holy book whether Quran or Bible. Finally, question to Mr. Joseph Sulaiman: can tell us how old was Mary when she was married to Joseph, the Carpenter and gave birth to Jesus?

  4. Point of corrections in my above comment:
    1. “Apostle Johnson Sulaiman” instead of Joseph Sulaiman,
    2. as islam is not base on origin or inheritance … Instead on base on origin and inheritance…..
    3. Can you tell us how old was Mary when she was married to Joseph the carpenter…….
    Finally, I wish Mr. Sulaiman God bless so as to revert back to the genuine faith, the ultimate and the religion of peace, Islam before his death. Amin

  5. Something is wrong with Zeenat, Salihu, bature, arowolo and maimako. When issues that are bother on the rights of an individual or person in a given state or country, we shouldn’t mix it religion. Will any of you give your daughters out at age 5,6,7 or 8? Let’s value dignity of the girl-child.

  6. Truth is, these smelly muslims are not only heretic fools but imbeciles who only learn how to argue for that cult of theirs without even knowing where they stand. @ Zeenat, @salihu,@ aroworo,@ bature,@ maimako. Stupid names, lost souls

    • Truth or whatever you call yourself !! Go through our comments again with the view of understanding and sense of responsibility you will find out that our argument is base on facts from and bible not sentiment or religious bigotry. Therefore, if you are responsible person speak with facts from holy books not just blind argument with sort of abusive words. Finally may Allah guide you to the religious of truth and peace, genuine and ultimate, which is Islam, the religious of Jesus the son of Mary and servant of Allah as proclaim by the Holy Bible and Qur’an.

  7. Salisu, you are a monkey. No wonder that Muslims enjoy sex than food and any other thing. They wouldn’t mind suicide because they have been promised 72 virgins to fuck. Musulmi da duri ! Na any thing them dey fuck even animals, how dem no go fuck small girls?

  8. Yerima is a paedophile and wicked fellow.Some posts personify one’s low level of orientation.Mayb islam promotes such act.Shame on u yerima and ur claimed islamic orientation.Mtcheeeeew!

  9. Some things are nt clear abt these muslims who hav unrest their understanding of the qua’ran on the basis of hadith.Wel,i knw ur folly and poor understanding of ur teachings.Those in support of this act are shameless and inhuman.Sha ur prophets promise u virgins abi,wait until u get there ko cos u r doom for condemnation fools.Pls emulate sheik gumil

  10. Question, why some christians are ignorant to the teaching of bible, its true for u to accused Yarima upon his right, bcs prostitution of age 13yrs is legal and considered as a source of income, u use to send the girls to any institutions out of ur location without minding their sponsorship thinking that they’ve many ways to sponsor them selves through prostitution which is against bible teaching, had this inglorious attitudes lawful to be observed by a Muslim. My advise, even if u try to forbid this act, u better restrict it to christians alone, and don’t interfere in to Muslims again. Apostle above may God guide u to the right fath.

    • i don’t know how some muslims reason. can u give out ur children at the age of 14 for marriage? if a religion tells u to do something that is ethically not inline with modern trends/practices and convectional norms, is it not better you take a look at the other side or better still, restructure it. it is better to a liberalist than a conservative…muslims should have a change of mind set. we are no longer in the medieval age so i ensure all good hearted muslims to embrace civilization and stop remaining/living in the past just because ur prophet told u to do so. imagine u as a girl getting married at age 14, will you be able to complete your education and achieve your career objectives?…what if the under-aged girl is later kicked out of her husband house? what will life hold for her? No education, NO job therfore NO life just because she was a complete house wife/slave…..underage marriage have a great adverse effect in our society at large

  11. Any1 who thinks Yerima is doing d ryt thing by d standards of any religion, b it islam or christianity, will rot in HELL wt him. I dint say so, my bible does say so in Psalms 37:9.
    PS. Christianity is nt a religion, itz a lifestyle.

    & @Bro salihu, If d Apostl has chosen 2 lead ds lyf, m so happy 4 him. U shld do same too b4 itz too l8, Christ loves u more dan u’ll eva know it now & thrz nothing u can do 2 make him love u more dan e already does, itz u dat jst nid 2 knw d TRUTH. I pray 4 u

  12. 1.do you really serve the only living GOD?
    2.what relationship do you have together?
    3.if you cannot passive any character of the Living in the LIVING GOD you said you serve?,if no,i boldy tell you that you are at a great risk,because you know not HIM.
    4.if truly you serve the only living GOD.
    does the SPIRIT OF GOD dwells in you?
    5.just following religion or following GOD?
    THE BIBLE DOES NOT IDENTIFY ANY RELIGION NEITHER DOES GOD IS CONCERN ABOUT YOUR RELIGION,but CONCERN ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP.

    come to JESUS TODAY AND HE will lead you to GOD and become the son of GOD(a sinless being) not only the truth and faith.

  13. All i knw is dat dis pastor sulaiman or wat ever he is is just sayin his wil, wil de bible did nt abide dis. So if i may urge all d xtians pls dnt believe in him. He is jus an ellitrate in Islamic Religioun. So i may ague for or against dis contention. cause it is a notion flabagasted wit ful of nexons. Sulaiman if i may advice u just maintain ur capacity as a pastor. but dnt go over nd be stabalizing islam. We need peace nd prosperity. 4 All d muslims { ANFIQU FISSABILILLAH } Umar Ja’afar Umar Al Jenawy

  14. Is that all this wicked Senator and his demonic religion can think of in this time and days when our country needs Political, social and Economic development? No wonder they are so violent in nature. first is Boko-na -ram, egypt crises, syria crises, nowTunisia have started their own demonstartion and very soon it will burst to something else. This islamic region or their so called jihad is a demonic practise because its always bloodhungary. So what you now want is to violently take lttle girls virginity while you enjoy the pleasure of them crying under your arms. Low moral dogs.

  15. ComeOooo dis Mumu muslims/hausa idoits dey krazeOoo…………….God would surely punish dat stupid Yerima,mek him go marry 5yrs old pikin,18 too 2 big…………….Useless. Rotten souls……Dnt knw why I HATE hausa’s/muslims,iF I gt chance I erhh I go so deal wif una.DIRTY THINGS

  16. I wonder why the xtians like poke-nosing into the muslims affairZ..if I may ask, do muslims Castigate ur. So-called holy pastors who repeatedly rape their church members publicly?, or has the muslims ever called for the flogging or arrest of ur so-called popes. And Archbishops Who are gays?…if ur xtianity allowz for the pastors to sleep with his church members then SO BE IT likewise if islam allows for a man to MARRY a 13yrold legally the equally SO BE IT!!! We will all face God eventually one day, Neva try to force anyone to follow ur own opinion….nawa o!!! na by force make we follow una opinion? Mwsttttt

  17. please,don’t say anything that can harm you,i perceive you don’t know GOD,you are just following religion and not THE LIVING GOD,if i may ask,has LIVING GOD you thought you serve speak often with you?

  18. Islam is a religion of peace, the world we remain peace with the use of the Holy Book ”QUR’AN KAREEM” it’s is the word of ALLAH, may ALLAH, take perfect control, nd forgive all our abusive comments on religion basis.

  19. i don’t know how some muslims reason. can u give out ur children at the age of 14 for marriage? if a religion tells u to do something that is ethically not inline with modern trends/practices and convectional norms, is it not better you take a look at the other side or better still, restructure it. it is better to a liberalist than a conservative…muslims should have a change of mind set. we are no longer in the medieval age so i ensure all good hearted muslims to embrace civilization and stop remaining/living in the past just because ur prophet told u to do so. imagine u as a girl getting married at age 14, will you be able to complete your education and achieve your career objectives?…what if the under-aged girl is later kicked out of her husband house? what will life hold for her?
