President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari has been criticized by a section of the Nigerian online Muslim community for shaking hands with Mrs. Lara Adams Oshiomole.

Buhari was a guest at the wedding ceremony of Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomole to Lara Fortes, a Cape Verde national, and former air hostess at Emirate Airlines when he shook hands with the bride. The incident has sparked off a controversy as some Nigerians have expressed their disappointment over the action, noting it was a violation of his religious beliefs.

Below are sets of tweets, which capture the angst against Buhari over what some say was intentionally a harmless gesture of courtesy.
