Nigerians have called on the federal government to release the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El Zakzaky, so as to put a stop to the sum of N3.5 million allegedly being used to feed him monthly.
This call came in reaction to a video, showing Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, alleging that the Federal Government spends N3.5 million on feeding El Zakzaky every month.
The video which was shared on Wednesday has been trending on Twitter, with Twitter users sharing their opinion about the claim of the minimum wage
FG spends N3.5m monthly, to feed detained Shi'ite leader, Zakzaky – Lai Mohammed. N3.5m to feed one person excluding his family but to pay N30k minimum wage which is less than a $100 is a problem. Lai Mohammed and Buhari must take us for a fool.#BetterNigeriaWithAtikuObi pic.twitter.com/Wo6JnljFW5
