To think this paedophile is a lawmaker in my country. God.
@Yemisi i tire oooooooooooooooooooooo
Gosh, what a useless man, the curses that would be on u and ur generation to come…im happy im not u!
Someone please google “vesicivaginal-vaginal” fistula and see the health risks his unlucky 13-year old bride is predisposed to. Channeling anger on this guy is apparently needless, he wasn’t the only one who voted it into law. Hence, we have more demons in the Senate House than in the local shrines.
In case you were wondering why Naija is the way it is, well look no further because you my friend are staring at the the problem. #yerima
Lol, even d presenter don vex, it takes a lot of tolerance to sit down and listen to this disgusting pig of a man!
I gree with you Yemisi, this is plain and simple child brides, that is what they want, to sleep with children and manipulate them – in clear view they are bloody paedophiles… yes i’ve said it! hiding under the law. So when a child who is in puberty at 9 is ready for marriage, rubbish! does he not have his own female kids, so at 13 to sell your kids to a man of 60. God punish these people! fact is they are all sexual predators!
Its Rather unfortunate we have people like this representing us.
he should be stoned to death….
ouch!! useless man…
lol, they should take him to mecca for that haha..
pervert!! ugh!! this man disgusts me!.
I almost had convulsion yesterday ….because of this man. Hiss.
Please remember that this young man is one of the highest paid lawmakers in the world!smh!
The man was yarning dust! ‘if you see my daughter, if you see my daughter’…. Yerima!, because your daughters looks older in age doesn’t mean you will hold the whole country into ransom!
Baba agbaya….he just doesn’t get it…what a shame
SHAME ON YOU. ONE WORD FOR THIS GUY..
Ah for once I’m proud of the nigerian journalist not afraid to ask questions, she was really serving it to him o and u could tell she was really pissed lol, not like some others that would be doing yes sir yes sir, and I assume from her dressing she is also a Muslim woman. Tbh most of my Muslim friends condem yerima and his peadophile ways even though they may be the minority.
if all d muslims voted in favour of dis ridiculous laws, wat of d christians or are d muslims nw more than them? n since they want dis law hw many of their children have they given out instead of takin advantage of d poor people they’re suposed to protect.
Fucking pedophile burning in my soul mehm!! urrggg when i say i dont like this religion now hiss i mean if u r a christian this can never happen because you cant use the bible to justify it!!
There is no Christian way to speak to this guy. May God soda his life. Bastard.
So girls who start having their mentral cycle at the age of 9 can be married out too ko? This guy is pathetic, Issh!!!
What a nation with this kind of calibre in the house. He is not even ashamed of himself. If only we Christians know who we are in Christ.
There is only one way and that way is JESUS.
Gosh to mistakenly watch this idiot interview on a monday morning spoils ones week
“M”, the ultimate pedo burning crispy in hell, and him paving a crispy way for the rest of followers world wide. Good luck
Too sick to watch this… Nigerians!! We are taken for foolsssss! How cn we allow dis kinda person represent us. A revolution is needed in Nigeria, to kill off sick bastards like him. I am soo angry. God pls help our children, ur children!!
This pedophile continues speaking because the senate did not lock him up like they should have. Someone please put a leash on this dog
only if someone would just stone this guy or assasinate him. i know this wouldnt solve our problem but a man like this doesnt deserve to be alive and breathe the air i breathe
I love this
Yerima – For example I was just looking at the European laws and I found that [the] age of puberty to be defined between 12 & 14
Presenter – But lets go back to the Quran and Sharia, that has been the basis of the argument you’ve been making on this matter. What is the age of puberty in the Qur’an?
I love how she kept dragging him back to address the source of his contention. And I love how it was a Muslim woman that interviewed him, so there can be no allegation of him being witch-hunted by a christian interviewer, for instance. Because once this animal started ramblingh on about how “this is not [the] issue of the marriage of children … people are deviating from the main debate” and how “that Child Right is not constitutional”, I may have spit on him.
Okay. One factor is unaccounted for….. When the islamic laws were written puberty occured late. Today, because of contaminants in food and the environment as well as obesity, children are now developing breasts at sometimes 7 years old and the age keeps decreasing (the precocious puberty phenomenon). Yerima, how do we address this dilemma because pretty soon, it will be okay to have a 4 year old baby for your desert. Let us not forget that these great books were written given the context of the time. When Mohammed recommended puberty, he was looking at slightly more mature girls. I have also not read the Quran. Is there a std definition for puberty as referred to in this book? that is also important. Finally, those babes some several centuries ago were not going to school anytime soon; their only aspiration was to find a man’s house.
Nigerians keep on burning suspected thieves but dont want to burn this confirmed pedophile.
U can say that again… Nigerians are just so foolish
am speechless cos right now am having goose bumps a resultant effect of the revulsion am feeling right now! May God forgive this demented and twisted man cos he is cursed!
Primrove……. SHUT UP AND TAKE A SEAT ON THE FLOOR!!!!!! before I hunt u in addition to this sick bastard yerima. longest hiss ever
Before you give Primrowe a seat on the floor, take the time to really read his/her comment. Primrowe is not in support of Yerima’s child bride useless talk, instead Primrowe pointed out facts that Yerima never considered or may not have thought about in his quest to support marrying off girls such as early puberty these days given several factors as opposed to in the old days… Primrowe also asked (I believe in sarcasm) if STD’s were mention anywhere in the Quaran. Read carefully before you put someone off.
This man plucks off medical doctor of the marriage market. And goes on to marry more teenage girls under the guise of religion. 28 kids, and one married at 16, good gracious!! Not sure we have a proper constitutional script for the modern world. Yerima is locked in a paternalistic world view of Islam, not that Christianity where pastor is daddy, or fornicating in grace is any better.
i love this woman
Lool at this dude, These are the same homophobic guys who don’r\t want gays to have consensual love but will fuck children. Yuck.
Sometimes the best thing to say is nothing, some people are not even worth your words.
why do muslims want to marry 12 yr old girls? that should be the bigger question in nigeria! live in fear oo! dont take ur child around these kind of people!
Muslims do not want to marry 12 year old girls. Just sexual predators hiding behind the mask of religion do.
unbelievable! this is why the state and religion should be as far away from each other as possible! how? just how is this paedo a law maker!
is this the chapter is quoting en.knowquran.org/koran/4/?
what’s the verse? i don’t see where it says what he says
*sigh* I cant even watch the full video. People need to realise that religion is a different thing entirely from the laws that govern a country and the constitution these laws are entrenched in. . I cant say how much this video uusets me, its a moot point, so i will come up with a solution instead. Nigeria should become a secular country. You justify inadvertently supporting child abuse based on your religion which everyone isnt a part of, but which has the effect of binding EVERYONE in the country. im not saying muslim children should be subjected to this nonsense instead but the absurdity of the religious justification as the sole basis for this draconian law angers me.. i tire. for him to sit there and say adulthood is not by age, but by menstruation and growth of breast.. this man sickens me. I have nothing against Islam but I am pretty sure like everything else in the world, the Quran can be interpreted not to have such a drastic effect… its illiteracy sha so i wont rant too much.
I refuse to ruin my week by watching this….piece of shit defend his right to marry a child. GOD FORBID!!! Why do we need holy books to defend sick, sick, despicable acts….what ever happened to common sense? UGH!!!!
This is Yerima is a shameless man!!!!! I am not aware that Nigeria operates under islamic or christian laws. I know that Nigeria has a constitution which is somewhat secular. How come some people always mischievously exploit religion to commit evil acts? I weep for Nigeria that with all the social and economic issues that beleaguer this nation of over 150 million people, this fooooool called Senator Yerima has made legalizing peadophilia his priority. Shame on Nigeria’s national assembly for their gross ineptitude and cowardice on speaking out and taking concise action to curb the excesses of idiots like Yerima.
i believe 12 out of 36 nigerian states have adopted Sharia law. that’s why he’s saying if Islam allows it, then if you’re covered by sharia law, you are protected.
yerima is a curse to his generation
devil saw you and picked race, ran 4/40 without looking back
i have never sn where a man discuss little girls menstrual period
SHAME on u and ur family, shame on d womb u popped out from
Well done to dis presenter. God will bless u.
she did an excellent job
I can’t help but think this senator and the religious & legal arguments concerning child brides are red-herrings distracting what’s really at stake here. Even if the senate made a law banning child marriage across the nation, would that really stop the family living hand to mouth who has been offered a bride price for their 7 year old daughter from taking the offer? This child bride matter, as usual, is all the inequity in our society which allows men like Yerima to take advantage of the most vulnerable of our society, poor, uneducated young girls. This is not a religious problem, if so we would have heard many announcements of Northern senator’s daughters entering into marriage at a very young age. Furthermore, we love to point to Sharia law but lets expand this conversation to include the deadly silence on the many equally YOUNG girls being raped, exploited and sold for prostitution every day in every part of Nigeria. Instead of crying out about abuse of power and pedophilia we look the other way. For all those who are motivated by this issue, I beg you to look into supporting with your time and money local Nigerian NGOs who get at the root of this issue by empowering young women and girls with skills and access to education. I would be happy to suggest excellent organizations doing great work that need your support.
Yerima is trully d antichrist! Making it so easy for one to hate on islam even more. It means dis babaric animal will keep watch dogs to sniff little girls panties to know when their menstrual cycle starts so they can be termed ‘mature’ enough for marriage?? Yerima pls i hope u get to see ALL these posts…. U ARE DAMMED FOR LIFE! U ARE A MISTAKE TO HUMANITY AND EVEN UR RELIGION! My bible says Sin is sin……. but this ur own is definitely a greater sin, and ur own punishment??? Even the devil is still thinking it out. BASTARD!
Shame on the IDIOT!!! I wonder who voted this stupid HE-GOAT, Yerima into the senate. Wow, this MONSTER of a man is clearly a pedophile and he is supposed to be a law maker…. smh. When we have lawmakers like this, who needs enemies…. With serious issues, like bad water, no electricity, bad roads, failing educational system, unemployment, etc… the government couldn’t sit down to talk about this but instead they choose to vote on child marriage. I curse the day and the parents who gave birth to a monster like Yerima and their stupid President BADLUCK Jonathan… The worst president to date that Nigeria has ever had.
These pedophiles – like him should be stopped. Good reporting and journalism; I like how she persisted to uncover his true intentions to continue to use Islam as justification to harbor pedophiles. She uncovered every lie he tried to use to disguise the fact that he likes young girls and is a pedophile himself, so he wants to protect that- 1) marrying a medical doctor (she’s an educated woman – so we should applaud that, whatever – the really question is how old was she when he married her), 2) “blame the west for everything argument” – surprised he didn’t evoke israel for that matter lol, 3) what other leaders of other (christian) faiths contradict themselves in religious matter like gay marriage, but wouldn’t mention Islam because it would have been considered blasphemy [another conservation for another day]…..she really asked him to show proof how he would protect children and he couldn’t. He didn’t even acknowledge pedophiles exist and are a problem in society.
So there is a child’s act law that protects children under 18 from been married off unfortunately not all the states have passed it though it’s been put in place since 2003. If all states should be made to enforce it then people like this guy won’t be able to legally marry any child under 18.
I only feel sad for those underage girls being defiled by people like Yerima..with there bodies so unprepared for what they get. I swear its people like this that makes me feel like having super natural powers. God knows what I would have done to him!
This foolish man is a pedo. Dirty sick badstard .
Lol! When they called for separation of church (religion) and state as regards the gays, people were up in arms. Now this out and proud paedophile is using this juxtaposition to his full advantage, quoting that a mature and pubescent girl is ready for marriage even at 12 and all of you are squirming. Don’t squirm o.
And I like how she added that “a lot of these books were based 400 years ago and society has changed.” When it’s time to fight for equal rights for gays, the bible thumpers won’t hesitate to pull out their over 2000-year old scripture to paraphrase, forgetting that the same bible was used to justify slavery. Comedy!
Oh yes o! Justify slavery the bible did and more than slavery sef. Here below is a sample:
Lev 25:44 [KJV] “Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids. [NIV] Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves.”
It explains in part (Arabs and Jews are cousins) why we have many Abdi-somethings as names of muslims. Whether it is Abdallah, Abduallahi, Abdusallam, they are derivatives of the Islamic slave heritage, and another stem of the Abrahamaic religion. We see a lot of similarities amongst the sects in the Abrahamaic religions.
I think what we need to do is not just separate the state and the church, but also extend that separation to be conscious of our heritage, suffering and socio-economic backwardness as black people. Women are valuable resources in these modern times, and they have been found to possess superior intellect than men that fits the demands of the times where brawn have been replaced by machines.
No female child should be allowed to be wasted, or married off in the manner this man speaks. The country would end up suffering its consequence. We are seeing that trend in the North East where Boko Haram is destroying all the structures of modern institutions.
The scary thing for me is how “articulately” he makes his argument. Meaning he isn’t an idiot, he’s rationalized the whole issue and actually think he’s in the right. I think this is the same kinda mentality that terrorists and religious zealots have. Scary ish.
Loved the interviewer #nuffrespect
OMG how can dis guy equate menstruation with maturity when 9 year old’s get periods these days! this is sad so sad, i only pity pple subject to Islamic laws. thank God am a christian!!!!
He has explained himself.
What a shame! Are these people moving forward or backward
