Social media users from Northern Nigeria have attacked British Broadcasting Corporation (Hausa Service) for publishing a picture of King Salman of Saudi Arabia shaking hands with German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.

BBC Hausa had on Tuesday morning published the picture of the duo together on its online platform.

“Saudi King Salman emphasizes Germany’s importance to freedom of expression,” the photo was captioned.

But some commentators from Northern Nigeria accused the British media organisation of ‘undermining Islam’ by using a picture that shows the custodian of Islam’s holiest place in a handshake with a woman.

Some also accused it of ‘working for Jews’ and warned the staff to be cautious of what they called the “wrath of God”.

Earlier on Monday, social media users from Northern Nigeria lashed out at people of Niger Republic, accusing them of losing their faith and being on the verge of becoming infidels after online Hausa medium, Damagaram Post of Niger Republic, published a picture of a lady from Damagaram participating in a beauty pageant.
