'This Is Nigeria:' Muslim group makes U-turn on threat to sue Falz over "provocative" video.

MURIC, however, said this is not a 'U-turn' but a change of tactics in dealing with the believed misrepresentations contained in the video.

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) which earlier condemned Nigerian rapper Folarin 'Falz' Falana's 'This is Nigeria' video, has backed down.

The group had threatened to take legal action against Falz if he did not take down the video. It also demanded an apology from the rapper.

MURIC had complained that the video was distasteful and that the rapper misrepresented the Chibok girls.
The video featured, among other elements, some female  choreographers wearing hijab and dancing 'shaku-shaku', and a Fulani man appearing to behead an individual.

A statement issued by MURIC on Monday, June 11, said it has resolved not to take a legal action against Falz but instead took the matter to government agencies responsible for censoring films and videos.
