‘I didn’t know burning Qur’an is offence’ – Tani Olohun begs Muslims

Traditionalist, Abdulazeez Adegbola, a.k.a Tani Olohun, has pleaded with the entire Muslim community to forgive him for allegedly burning the Qur’an and defaming some Muslim personalities in Kwara State.

Tani Olorun made this plea while addressing the court after he was granted bail on Thursday.

The Isese adherent pleaded with “Alfa Labeeb”, one of the applicants, and the “Muslims” for his actions.

He said, “I don’t know that burning the Qur’an is an offense, and when I was told, I immediately pulled down the video of the incident from my social media handle in less than a minute.

“I beg all my prosecutors and the Muslims all over to forgive me, and I promised I would not repeat such an act again of posting negative videos on social media handles.”

Earlier, the court presided over by Magistrate A.S Adam, where Tani Olohun is standing trial for two separate cases granted him bail in the sum of N2 million and three sureties in the same sum.

The matter was adjourned to January 9, 2024.
