As the 2019 general elections draw nearer, electorate have started making requests from candidates just as candidates have started making promises to the latter.
The clamour for the establishment of a Sharia court that will adjudicate cases concerning Muslims has begun by the Muslim community in Lagos state.
The Muslim community had an interactive session with Owolabi Salis, the governorship candidate of the Alliance for Democracy (AD), the Nation reports.
According to report, the Muslim community said the Sharia court is needed “because Muslims’ affairs are being decided by people who know nothing about Islamic laws”.
The governorship candidate, who promised to set up a committee to look into the request if he becomes victorious at the poll, said religious leaders must oppose injustice. In attendance at the event were Muslim clerics from Ikorodu, Epe, Badagry, Ikeja and other areas in Lagos state.
