_From MSSNOAU to all Muslims in Nigeria and the world at large._
_All praise is due to Allah, the lord of the worlds. May His peace and blessing be upon the noble prophet Muhammad, his household, his companions and all those who follow his laid down path till the day of judgement._
Firstly, what happened yesterday was instructive in its lessons. It proves the futility of attempting to forcefully steer the affairs of men and women who are mature enough to manage their affairs. What was beautiful about it was how the point was made without violence on the brothers’ and sisters’ part. Interestingly, the first step to initiate violence, albeit unsuccessfully, came from the person, old and venerated, the least expected to make such a move. It was disappointing. Wallahi, eyes are still wide.
The Chief Imam of OAU was the person.
He attacked a brother who raised his hand to ask a question.
The sham inauguration of their attempting-to-be-imposed executives was yesterday, slated for after the jumuah prayer. The Muslim students of this university, present there, usually made up the bulk of those who filled up the mosque for Jumuah. And they waited, enraged within but peaceful, while the drama to impose an alien set of boys on them as executive was commenced.
The Imam gave his speech and concluded, spinning the usual lies. The mic was given to one of the imported outsiders bent on controlling OAU’s Muslim students affairs at all cost, who did what he knows how to do best: poor sophistry married with a speech that pitiably displays his blind ignorance of the OAU reality. Hmmm, our good brothers and sisters simply kept mute and watched. Many were already bemused. It was an exhibition.
His talk over, a brother raised his hand to ask a question. He raised his hand: a gesture clear, one that everybody saw. And the Chief Imam of OAU, in his eminence, launched himself at the brother!
Hands clawing at the brothers jalab, a head blow to his chest, the brothers and everybody watching never saw it coming! The Chief Imam of OAU wanted to wrestle a surprised son to the ground!
“Chief Imam! Chief Imam!” was one of the cries that dominated the air. Lost in the standing crowd, holding the brother in a grip from his hands and claws, the Chief Imam would never let go until he pushed him deep into the entreating crowd. The crowd of fellow students was those who came to the brother’s rescue: quickly pulling him, dragging him, almost carrying him, to safety outside the mosque!
