The Muslim community in Lagos State has demanded the establishment of a Sharia Court that will adjudicate cases concerning Muslims.
They spoke in Lagos at an interactive session with the governorship candidate of the Alliance for Democracy (AD), Mr. Owolabi Salis.
The community said it needed a Sharia Court “because Muslims’ affairs are being decided by people who know nothing about Islamic laws.”
Salis promised to set up a committee to look into the request if elected as governor. He said religious leaders must oppose injustice.
The event was attended by Muslim clerics from Ikorodu, Epe, Badagry, Ikeja and other areas in Lagos.
