A Twitter user with the name ‘Amb Abdularahman Yahaya’ has lashed at Journalist Kadaria Ahmed for allegedly “converting from Islam to Christianity”.
The Twitter user who took to his twitter account to say that the journalist does not deserve to live. after
Yahaya made the comment yesterday morning, as part of a series of expletives he has directed at the journalist since the weekend when she described Abdulaziz Yari, Governor of Zamfara State, as “the most useless Governor in the history of Nigeria”.
Kadaria Ahmed had so described Yari while addressing pressmen in Abuja during a protest against the ineffectiveness of both Zamfara State government and the Federal Government in halting the spat of killings in the state.
Since then, Yahaya has dedicated his Twitter account to hurling abuse at the journalist.
In one tweet, he wrote: “Kadaria, you called our beloved governor useless, you’re the most idiot, selective, undesirable journalist in the history of Nigeria [sic].”
And in yet another, he wrote: “Corrupt journalist,bias, selective, senseless.why you no called out the useless Barno governor in 2014 where got over 200 girls kidnapped!!kadiria Ahmad I against u. You’re a corrupt journalist [sic].”
And, the most disgusting tweet of all, he wrote: “Kadaria, you converted to Christianity in London. I was appalled when I heard her describing herself as a passionate citizen of Zamfara. By Islamic tenets, Kadaria is a walking corpse. She is supposed to have been killed as an apostate. She’s a condemned soul [sic].”
This particular tweet attracted public opprobrium to Yahaya, with many Twitter users calling for his arrest by security agents.
Kadari herself has responded to the tweet, writing: “I have reported this account for threatening my life even as I refused to dignify his allegation with a response. No one should have the right to call for anyone’s death. If anything happens to me, this is the man to hold.”
When Aisha Ahmad El-Rufai, Kadari’s immediate younger sister and wife of Nasir el-Rufai, the Governor of kaduna State, was contacted to ascertain her religious status, she said: “Kadaria has never been a Christian; nobody in my family is a Christian. She has always been a Muslim. She is still a Muslim; she has never for one moment converted to another religion.
“What is happening is that when you tell people who they are, and they know this is the truth about themselves, they always want to get back at you. And if they can’t get back at you directly, they try to instigate other people to do the dirty job for them.
“Kadaria is a Muslim; she was born into a Muslim family; she is a direct descendant of Shehu Usman dan Fodio. She has never and would never change her religion. As far as we are concerned, it doesn’t even matter what religion one follows. She married someone who is from a Christian family, but he had to convert to Muslim before the consent was given to her to marry him; he became a Yusuf. He became a Muslim before he was allowed to marry her.”
