Fani Kayode, a former minister of aviation says that the Emir Sanusi Lamido is being fought by the spirit of Gideon Akalula.
Gideon Akaluka was reportedly lynched and beheaded by a group of 1000 Muslims, who invaded the prison in Kano in 1994. Akaluka was said to have been dragged out of his, beaten mercilessly then beheaded for defiling the Koran. He was accused of blasphemy against Islam and sent to prison.
His head was said to have been paraded in the streets of Kano, while his headless body buried days after.
According to Fani-Kayode, the Emir should ask why such treatment was meted against the Christian trader.
He wrote: The spirit of Gideon Akaluka, the Christian who was dragged out of a Kano police cell in the ’90s and beheaded by a crowd of savage jihadists for allegedly using a page of the Koran as toilet paper, is really fighting Emir Sanusi. Ask Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, as he then was, why?
