A self-proclaimed Imam Nanfo Diaby in Kankan, Guinea Conakry, was arrested after leading Eid-ul-Fitr prayers in his local Madingo language instead of Arabic, DW reported on Friday.

According to DW, Guinea’s Office of Religious Affairs has previously warned Nanfo to refrain from the practice described as blasphemy.

Angry protesters attacked his mosque, and the police arrested him along with some of his followers, DW said.

The religious department banned him from leading prayers in his compound and anywhere in the country, the outlet added.
