Garba Shehu, Spokesman to the President Muhammadu Buhari, has been called out by Nigerian Muslims after he was pictured moving to hug a woman.

Hugs and handshakes between the opposite sex who are not married are forbidden in Islam.

However, in a photo shared online, Garba Shehu, a practising Muslim, was captured in a way that seemed he was leaning in to hug a woman though there’s no actual proof of that.

This angered Muslims and they accused him of ”disgracing the religion.”

Below are some comments.
