The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has reacted to the ongoing sexual relationship between Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemates Khalid and Daniella.

Ishaq Akintola, its director, in an interview with Vanguard, said he can’t make any Shari’a pronouncement on Khalid because “whatever anybody is doing on BBNaija is haram.”

In a video that earlier surfaced online, Khalid is seen under the duvet with Daniella. The pair were seemingly having sexual intercourse.

Khalid, who observes Muslim daily prayers in the BBNaija house, had earlier expressed his disapproval over alcohol.

He had also told Daniella that if she continued drinking alcohol, he would have to end his relationship with her because of his religion.

Akintola, while speaking on the housemate’s recent on-screen stunt, argued that MURIC has called on the federal government to ban BBNaija.

He said it is unfortunate that leaders and people do not listen when cases affect the morality of the nation.

“I have no comment concerning Khalid. Whatever anybody is doing in BBNaija is haram, BBNaija itself; the whole of it. So, it’s not about the aspect of alcohol,” the cleric said.

“I was part of a group that went to court to stop BBNaija, but the system continues to encourage BBNaija, some of our people in the media, and journalists continue to encourage them because there’s money there.

“Nigeria worships money and then we are destroying our youths, who are watching this show and there are some irresponsible parents, too, who are watching and encouraging their children to watch it.”
