The capital of Katsina State is experiencing escalating tension due to a social media post that some residents find offensive.

The Facebook post, allegedly written by a Christian indigene from the state, one Mani Abubakar, sparked anger and led to the destruction of his house and car at Babaruga after he escaped late Tuesday night.

Abubakar’s current whereabouts remain unknown.

The post, written in Hausa, reportedly contained derogatory comments about Islam, prompting the mob’s reaction.

The Christian Association of Nigeria is working with authorities and plans to meet with the Emir of Katsina to ensure his safety when he reappears.

Christian leaders in the state have urged for calm and understanding.

The Vice Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Katsina, Venerable Muyiwa Segun, condemned any act of violence or disrespect towards other religions.

“Everyone should respect the other’s religion,” Segun stated, adding, “Christians don’t have any business abusing other people’s religion. That is not how to do evangelism.”

Segun also confirmed that CAN is working with security officials and religious leaders to ensure peace and safety in the community.

The exact content of the Facebook post remains unclear, but reports suggest it questioned the origin of the Quran and criticised some aspects of Islam.
