Muslim Girl Converts To Christianity In Jos And It's Causing Controversy by zakim(m): 7:33pm On Jan 13
Controversy is trailing the alleged conversion of a Muslim girl to Christianity as the girl’s father was said to have requested the intervention of members of the State Security Service (SSS) who allegedly arrested the girl’s male friend, Engineer Simput Eagles Dafup in Plateau State.

Daily Trust gathered that Nabila Umar Sanda, 18, and daughter of a traditional title holder in Biu, Borno State was reported to have been abducted in Abuja on December 1, 2017.

Unable to reach Nabila, who finished from Air Force Comprehensive College, Jos and a 200 Level student of Mass Communication at the Bingham University in Nasarawa State, her father was said to have reported to the SSS that his daughter was missing following which she was traced to the house of one Pastor Jerry Datim in Jos.

However, Datim told Daily Trust on phone that Nabila had converted to Christianity while at Bingham University and had met Dafup, a lecturer, in Ghana four years ago on a flight to Dubai.

The pastor said Nabila had recently reconnected with Dafup who was visiting Jos for the Christmas break and expressed her intentions to fully convert to Christianity.

Pastor Jerry further explained that though Nabila’s father was aware of her intention to convert, he had said it was unacceptable by him.

“After they assaulted my family, I took the matter to the Plateau State Administrative Secretary of JNI, Sheikh Abdulazeez Yusuf who was unhappy with the development and arranged a meeting with the SSS. Even at the SSS office, when they asked why I didn’t take the girl to the police station, it was the JNI that answered by telling them that we have been working together to resolve such issues without involving security.”

Dafup’s mother, Lydia Istifanus Dafup yesterday in a press conference said her son had been tortured before taken away and pleaded for his release.

Wow!

It is pitiable when law enforcers do not know the law. The legal age in Nigeria is 18, hence she has the right to choose what religion that pleases her without consent or interference from her parents or guardians.

Assaulting and detaining that innocent young man is barbaric, inhumane and illegal.

Islam is the fastest growing religion they will come and tell you when a Christian converts to Islam but hide their heads, take you to a mental assylum, send law enforcement after you or even behead you when one tries to leave Islam for another belief.

So SSS does not know the scope of their jurisdiction in this country anymore?

Or did someone transfer the job of handling civilian matters to the SSS from the Police?


And in which constitution is an 18-year old girl disallowed from choosing her religion?

Tomorrow some people will get angry that Trump called their nation a shithole, this madness can only emerge from shithole countries

Just because Muslim Emirs connive with some unscrupulous ab*kis to kidnap Christians and forcefully convert them to Islam, they now want to do a return leg by claiming that a Christian and even a pastor connived to forcefully convert a Muslim to Christianity.

Here are the facts:
A 200L student is not an underage. I daresay she's more than 18.

If she's more than 18, she's free to convert to any religion she wants to.

She doesn't seem to have been kidnapped and hypnotised. The antecedents are not just there for Christians as they are for Muslims.

The young boy who the girl eloped with is being tortured unnecessarily by the DSS. Is the DSS now authorised to venture into ordinary civil matters? Why not use the police or take the boy to court if the father is so sure that he and his family have been wronged?

All in all, Nigeria needs a legal overhaul. It is not a crime, as some Sharia compliant states would say, to convert from any religion, especially Islam, to any other religion. It is not! Anyone who's abused or tortured for converting or aiding an adult to covert has been stripped off his/her fundamental human rights.

It's such a shame that we are in a country where a section has religious laws that are different from common civil laws. Nevertheless, there is no crime here but that of the persecution of an innocent boy by those who feel they own the country.
