Yahoo Boys are wasting their time fasting, according to the Chief Imam of Abuja and Chief Missioner of the Nigerian Dawah Front, unless they turn to God.
The cleric said even if Yahoo boys use the proceeds to construct a mosque, it would not be accepted.
“It is a sin. They steal people’s money through diabolical means. Even, if they spend their money to build mosques, Allah is not going to accept it, because Allah is pure and is not accepting anything except what is pure.
“Yahoo boys, kidnappers are fasting in vain. They must repent and they must not return to their business after Ramadan. ”.
The IYL Missioner, in his remarks, said election riggers and Yahoo boys that are fasting are fasting in vain.
“The month of Ramadan is to get the fear of Allah. The essence of Ramadan is to fear Allah.
“If someone has been involved in immoral acts, there is no way his fast can be accepted except he repents. ”.
Also speaking, the Imam of Liberty Mosque in Abeokuta, Ustadh Rasheed Adeyanju, warned election riggers and Yahoo boys against wasting their time by fasting.
“These people, Yahoo boys and election riggers are bad people and are not friends of Allah.
“They have made people suffer with their actions. Their fasting is a waste of time except they stop the act and repent. ”.
