Ordinary President’s assault on woman divides opinions


Nigerians on Twitter have expressed divergent opinions on a viral video of Ahmad Isah, also known as Ordinary President, hitting a woman during an interview.


In the trending BBC Africa Eye documentary video by Peter Nkanga, Isah assaulted the woman who was accused of setting her brother’s daughter on fire for alleged witchcraft.

The woman allegedly tied the victim’s hands and legs, poured kerosene on her head and set the girl on fire.

The Brekete Family host in the video asked the suspect how she confirmed the girl was a witch.


“Nobody. I don’t know what came over me. Please, I’m begging for forgiveness,” the woman said.

Isah further demanded she tells him what happened one last time but the woman insisted she didn’t know what happened.

The human right activist got furious, slapped her twice.


Majority of Twitter users threw their weight in support of his action. Some, however, kicked against it stating that under no circumstances should he have hit the woman.
