Lagos State House of Assembly says it did not secretly pass a Sharia Bill to get the support of northerners for the APC presidential candidate Bola Tinubu.
Chairman of House committee on information, security and strategy Setonji David said in a statement on Wednesday that the report by an online platform that Sharia courts have been set up is false.
David, representing Badagry II, said the report was a “mere figment of the imagination of the writer and a total lie from the pit of hell.”
The spokesperson of the assembly said no informed person should believe such lies against the assembly.
He said: “We will not have dignified the writer of this hate speech but in order to set the records straight, this is a mere figment of the imagination of the writer and a total lie from the pit of hell.
“No informed person should believe this lie against the assembly that is above the common standard of excellence. The news is far from reality.
“Some people are just mischievous. Spreading all sorts of untrue stuff. Is it possible to pass a law under cover?
“The process of law making is universal and very open. You cannot pass a law without subjecting it to public hearing in Lagos State.”
