He noted that in Islam, the normal practice is to bury a dead person within few hours of being pronounced dead.

He said although Baba Suwe, until his demise, was a celebrity Islam who does not give room for unnecessary jamboree during burials.

He said, “There are so many things that they are doing, that are un-Islamic, they put his body in a casket, some other well-wishers even said they want to take his body round, but the family has told us they won’t bury him with his body inside the casket.”

Well-wishers, sympathisers were unhappy over the decision but the clerics said the family has agreed to abide by the Islamic practice.
