Emir in Bauchi orders guards to flog Imam for conducting prayers in mosque despite #lockdown


The Emir of Azare in Bauchi state recently ordered his palace guard to flog an Imam for conducting congregational prayers in his mosque despite the ban on religious gatherings due to Corona-virus pandemic.

The mosque was  filled with Muslim faithfuls who defied social distancing, lock-down orders and ban on social as well as religious gathering. It is however unclear if members of his congregation were also penalized for their defiance.

In a video which is currently viral on social media, a guard can be seen flogging a man believed to be the Imam as onlookers stared in silence.
