Quotes

"At the point of arrest, Olalekan who parades himself"
The Ebola anthem reads in part: "Ebola Virus Disease; the deadliest in history; but we will push you out, by taking precaution; by constant washing of hands with water and soap, and keeping environment clean; together we shall push you out ... "
The time for the sacrifice is after the Eid prayer and slaughtering it before the prayer does not suffice as the Prophet SAW said: "The first act) with which we start our day (the day of Eid-el-Adha ) is that we offer prayer. We then return and sacrifice the animals and he who does that in fact has adhered to our practice. And he who slaughters the (animal on that day before the Eid prayer), has for him meat for his family, and there is nothing of the sort of sacrifice in it."
He noted that: "as at the time of this report, no human casualty was recorded on the part of Police, while some of hoodlums, escaped with bullet wounds."
