Kaduna State Government has arrested two Muslim clerics for disobeying the social distance order.
The two clerics flagrantly disobeyed the order and conducted congressional prayers on Friday.
“Two clerics have been arrested for conducting congregational prayers in violation of Kaduna State public health preventive measures,” the statement noted.
A statement by the Kaduna State Government further disclosed that the two clerics, Malam Aminu Umar Usman and Malam Umar Shangel will be prosecuted to serve as deterrent to other recalcitrant religious leaders.
Findings also revealed that a popular cleric in Plateau state also disobeyed the order and organized congregational prayers on Friday.
Many Nigerians have, however, called for his arrest and prosecution.
