Vice Chairman of the Council of Village Heads in Imo State, Chief Sylvester O. Dimunah, has said he accepted Islam due to the truthful nature of the religion and the steadfastness of Muslims.



The traditional ruler whose name is now Musa Dimunah, said he was particularly influenced by the good nature of the former secretary of the council and the executive secretary of Justice Mamman Nasir Islamic Centre for Peace and Research, Malam Ibrahim BioboNlomije.

"I did not accept Islam, I only revert to the religion that our forefathers practice and the universal religion of humanity. I’m impressed by the good nature of Muslims’ love for everybody and hatred for none apart from the way they revere Allah and all the Prophets without discrimination."
“I am also impressed by the brotherhood and mutual respect for each other and other members of the community,” he said.



He also said he was not under any pressure to drop his old name for becoming a Muslim and that his children and other family members did not oppose his being a Muslim.

There is no big deal about that, the man is the owner of his life so if he likes let him convert to anything after all Nigeria is a secular state and there is no law forbidding anybody from from worshiping anything he likes however a mention must be made of the maturity displayed by the people of Imo  state for not interfering with the chief right to freedom of worship as one of the fundamental human rights and at the same time our muslim brothers have to take a clue from this because among if it were to be one muslim chief in the far north that has converted from to Christianity it would have been greeted with trouble
