It can be recalled that the group during the week released a statement, ordering Falz to take down “This is Nigeria” video which, according to them, ridicules their religion because some girls were seen in the footage wearing hijab and dancing Shaku Shaku.

MURIC also threatened to take a legal action against the rapper after the expiration of the ultimatum given to him.

Reacting to the threat, Femi Falana said in as much as freedom of speech is constitutionally guaranteed in the country, nobody has the right to threaten another person.

According to him, the video in question contains a lot of messages and desired to be encouraged by anybody who has the interest of this country at heart. He said;

“My son is a lawyer and I have confirmed that he’s handling the threat within the ambit of the law. The video in question contains a lot of messages and it should be encouraged by anybody who has the interest of our country at heart.

“Since the group has threatened to sue him or threatening to sue him. My son has promised that he would meet them in court. I support that decision.

“We all belong to this country, nobody can threaten another person. Freedom of speech is constitutionally guaranteed.

“If you are aggrieved as a result of any publication or record, the appropriate thing for you to do is to go to court. I’d hope that they will go to court at the expiration of the ultimatum given to my son,”
