One Alieu Fatty of Tanji village was arrested by Police in Brusubi on Saturday for allegedly insulting Sheriff Muhammad Sanusi Nano Hydara, who has recently been declared president of the Supreme Islamic Council by Rawdatul Majaalis.
According to police sources, Alieu Fatty, a teacher at Matida’s Memorial Quranic School in Gunjur allegedly made the said comments on Friday through an audio recording widely shared on WhatsApp.
The audio caused public outrage and he was later taken in by the police.
Fatty, who is from Jalanbang village, admitted to the police in Brusubi that it was his voice.
He reportedly told the Police that one Rawdatul Majaalis member had insulted Imam Abdoulie Fatty and that was why he took it upon himself to insult a prominent leader of the Majaalis.
He reportedly showed no sign of remorse for his utterances which also caused a heated argument between rival supporters of the Majaalis and the SIC.
He was released on bail.
