Earlier today, reports made rounds that the Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has directly attacked the government of President Muhammadu Buhari for allowing the BBNaija show to go on.
The Islamic group labelled the show being aired on national television as “immoral, dangerous and bohemian”. BBNaija, is currently making waves in Nigeria featuring some romantic scenes among the housemates.
However, Nigerians on social media have opposed MURIC’s call for the banning of the reality show, arguing that the show is rated 18. The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC’s call on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the airing of Big Brother Naija reality TV show has been seen as baseless.
Check out some reactions below:

Is MURIC now in the business of deciding what Nigerians watch? Will the music industry be attacked too, when they see guys like @Dhorllyjazz here singing 'High' still on the way to scatter the screens? RT & comment #BBNaija pic.twitter.com/WPI3DK5ZU2

Big Brother used to show HM's bathing & all but because of NG they stopped it. They barely even show Sex scenes that happen in the house yet MURIC still complaining. If there was a Show that promotes God i am pretty sure hypocritical Morality FC won't watch it.

MURIC tells President Buhari to Stop #BBNaija2019 immediately 😁😁
Another misplaced priority
They're not showing #BBNaija on NTA, so why is it a problem to anyone?
