As efforts to curtail the spread of coronavirus, the Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria has called on Governors and other leaders at all levels to emulate Lagos State Government in distributing food and sanitary items to the populace during the lock down.

The Council in a statement issued by its Secretary-General, Nafiu Baba Ahmed, on Sunday in Kaduna, said all the affected countries across the globe took the measures in spite of their higher socio-economic standard.

According to the council, “Allah has enjoined the privileged amongst us to cater for the needy, thus: “And spend something (in charity) out of the substance which we bestowed on you, before death should come.

The Council also advised all Muslims to be law abiding as all the steps taken by the Government to curb the pandemic, are for the betterment of the citizenry.
