The Level Up housemates, Daniella and Khalid made headlines earlier in the week, after they had sex under the duvet on Monday night, while other housemates, were already asleep; an act that sparked mixed reactions on social media.

Now reacting in a conversation with Vanguard, the MURIC director said he cannot make any Shari’a pronouncement on Khalid because “whatever anybody is doing in BBNaija is haram.”

He said; “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 or whatever. 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.”

Akintola added that MURIC has called on the federal government to ban BBNaija, saying it was unfortunate that some of our leaders and people do not listen when cases affect the morality of the nation and the youths.

“The youth, whether a young man or an old man who goes to participate in BBNaija should be condemned. I will not pick any individual for particular criticism,” he added.

“Why will I pronounce a Shariah judgment on them? If it is in Oyo, Lagos or Enugu, they are not Shari’a compliant states. I can not make a Shari’a pronouncement on them. We can not bring Shari’a into BBNaija. I can not make any Shari’a pronouncement in a non-Shari’a issue, in a non-Shari’a state.

“Whatever is built on nothing is nothing. Whatever is built of haram is haram. We condemn BBNaija and whatever it produces, whatever is the product that comes out of it remains condemnable whether they are Muslims or Christians, we condemn every action that takes place in BBNaija and the government should ban it, but the government is not listening to what we are saying,” he said.

Akintola said MURIC has called on the federal government to ban BBNaija, saying it was unfortunate that some of our leaders and people do not listen when cases affect the morality of the nation and the youths.

He said the television stations propagating the show should be sanctioned by the National Broadcasting Corporation, NBC, because, “they are promoting immorality in the society.”

“They are also encouraging the youths to become robbers; to become millionaires and billionaires overnight. We are not encouraging productivity. They are encouraging materialism. So many other young ones, who are watching the show will also want to become billionaires overnight and they will want to go into yahoo-yahoo.”
