Top Islamic Scholars have intervened in the incident of alleged sharing of nude pictures and involvement in illicit acts by some members of a social media group.

The social media group on WhatsApp identified as ‘Perfection of Muslims’, was created on June 08, 2016.

The iWitness NG reports that the group has members both within and outside Nigeria. At about 11.08pm on Monday, the group has no fewer than 151 members.

Among the Islamic scholar that the case has been reported to by the parties involved are Chief Missioner of Ansar-Ud-Deen, Sheik AbdurRahman Ahmad; Chief Imam of Epe; and Imam Bari of Ajah Central Mosque among others.

Specifically, Sheik Ahmad invited the parties involved to a meeting on Tuesday in Lagos.

This is as members of the groups and some alleged victims have narrated their ordeal and involvement in the scandal.

They also provided evidences of the incident, one of which was a nude picture and conversation on sex.

In a chat history obtained by one of our correspondents, a discussion about genotype compatibility issue led to one of the group members identified as Osogbo Lady to seek clarification from Dr. Apena Yusuf in a private chat.

Yusuf is the creator of the group where the scandal occurred.

In the mutual chat, after a question that ‘is it not compulsory we have s*x?’ at 02.07am from Yusuf, a request for nude picture was made by the lady at 02.08am.

Subsequently, the lady sent a picture displaying her ‘uncladed waist area’ and demanded Yusuf’s own.
But Yusuf in an interview said he didn’t send his real picture but one downloaded on internet to the lady.

Describing his experience on the group, a member said, “Hmmm, they just had to expose the creator of the group for his atrocities. I don’t know how to relate it because it’s a sad case.”

NIGERIA’s foremost Islam news medium had launched an investigation into a petition alleging three individuals of posing as Islamic clerics on the social media application, Whatsapp, to sexually harass and deceive unsuspecting Muslim women.

The petition was brought to the iWitness NG’s attention by one Zhikrullah, through an electronic mail forwarded to editor@iwitness.com.ng

In the petition, the three persons indicted were Dr. Abdulrahman Yusuf (aka Nifemi); Ismi Risqiyah and another person identified as Nafeesah.

Investigation by one of our correspondents identified Robiu Sulaimon, Aminah Fashola, one Zaynab from Lybia, Bimbo Coker from Lagos, Subomi (a friend to Fashola) and another lady Kafayat, residing in Osogbo as parties in the scandal.

The petition claimed that the alleged persons were known to always pose as Islamic clerics on Whatsapp, thereby “creating groups and seeking nude pictures of Muslim women in the name of spreading and preaching the religion (Dawah) to them”.

But when contacted, Yusuf denied the allegations and provided evidences to clear himself from the scandal.

Yusuf explained that the message was a vendetta against them by Robiu Sulaimon, alleging that some of females were used by him to malign his personality.

However, Robiu Sulaimon confirmed that he was aware of the broadcast message informing the public about the occurrence in the group.

According to Yusuf, he created the Whatsapp groups to enrich the Islamic knowledge of Muslims.

On his part, Sulaimon Robiu, stated that the incident was known to many members of the WhatsApp group.

He sent evidences showing that Yusuf engaged in illicit activities and conversation with some members of the group.

While affirming that Yusuf was a choice of many females, Sulaimon explained that that should not be a reason to play on their weaknesses.
