Their lives in danger – MURIC seeks double security for Tinubu and Shettima ahead of May 29 inauguration

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has called for increased security measures for President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice-President-elect Kashim Shettima.

MURIC’s executive director Ishaq Akintola, made the call in a statement on Friday, April 28, 2023.

According to him, it was based on the alleged rising security threats and treasonable utterances from the opposition camp, which bordered on desperation.

“We find it necessary to alert the nation, particularly the security agencies, concerning ominous signs on the Nigerian political horizon,” the MURIC statement noted. “We call on the security agencies to double guards for the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his vice(-president), Kashim Shettima. Nothing must happen to them.”

The organisation added, “We remind those plotting to truncate the presidential inauguration, billed for May 29, of the dire consequences of their actions.”


Mr Akintola urged the opposition to exercise restraint in contesting the election results.

“Those who fight and run away live to fight another day. Those who did not win in 2023 have another chance in 2027,” the MURIC boss explained.

He added, “Remember the words of Paul Tibbets, who dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, ‘My God! What have we done?’ But it was too late. The damage had already been done. A word is enough for the wise.”
