NIGERIAN SINGER ACCUSED OF BLASPHEMY WILL DIE SAYS SHARIA COURT

Kano singer by name Yahaya Sharif-Aminu has been sentenced to death by hanging in a judgement by Upper Sharia Court sitting in Kano State Nigeria.

The 22 year old, Sharif-Aminu was found guilty by the court for blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad in a song he circulated through WhatsApp in march 2020.

Although he has 30 days to appeal the sentence, there has been both International and Nationwide angst against the judgement with some describing it as outrageous.


Meanwhile, the spokesman of Nigerian President, Bashir Ahmed took to Twitter to justify the judgement with his tweet this morning, saying he will not support #SaveKanoNine, a hashtag created to raise campaign against what people have come to refer to as extreme religious act.
