People now curse me in mosques –Aisha Yesufu


Activist , Aisha Yesufu , says she has been informed that people now curse her at mosques.
Yesufu, however , asked those cursing her why they had not done so when she was protesting against the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan .

She tweeted , “ I heard I am being cursed in mosques! People finish praying and take time out to curse me in their prayers . I have asked that they should please let me know how many of these curses they rained on me when I was making the same demands during GEJ ! We are all already cursed in Nigeria . Rolling on the floor laughing. ”

Yesufu, who is a co- convener of the Bring Back
Our Girls group , was one of the driving forces of the #EndSARS movement with the iconic photo of her in a flowing hijab with her raised clenched fist going viral on social media.

However, following her role
in the protests , several northern elements, including an actor , threatened to harm her.
Kannywood stars, Zahradeen Sani and Zainab Abdullahi , had called on northerners to attack Yesufu for her role in the protests.

Responding, Yesufu tweeted , “ I am not known in the North but a northern actor and actress are taking time out to call for attack on me .

“ Until Nigerians put sentiments aside and loudly demand #SecureNorth #EndInsecurity , Buhari wouldn’ t , but I hear they said protest is not allowed in Islam . It seems the killings and an incompetent president and commander -in -chief doing nothing is allowed . What do I know ?”
