The Lagos State House of Assembly has refuted claims suggesting that its lawmakers secretly passed a Sharia law.
In a communique by Chairman, Lagos State House of Assembly Committee on Information, Security and Strategy, Hon. Setonji David, the legislators said the claim which is all over social media is false.
According to Hon David, the Assembly has at no time passed a Sharia law in a deal to get Northern support for the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, as the peddlers of this deception would have people believe.
The lawmaker in the statement titled â€˜Alleged secret passage of Sharia law by Lagos Assembly, a lie from the pit of hellâ€™, stressed that the claim is malicious and unfounded.
â€œWe would not have dignified the writer of this hate speech but in order to set the record straight, this is a mere figment of the imagination of the writer and a total lie from the pit of hell.
â€œNo informed person should believe this lies against the Assembly that is above the common standard of excellence. The news is far from the reality,â€
