Kano Upper Shari’ a Court sentences man to death by hanging

A Kano Upper Shari’ a Court on Monday sentenced a 22 – year -old man to death by hanging for blaspheming Prophet Muhammad.

The Presiding Judge , Khadi Aliyu Muhammad Kani , gave the judgement after finding Yahaya Sharif – Aminu guilty as charged .

Sharif- Aminu , a resident of Sharifai in Kano metropolis , was accused of committing blasphemy against the Prophet in a song he circulated via
WhatsApp in March 2020 .

After the incident , protesters burned down the singer’ s family home and led a procession to the Kano Hisbah Command’ s headquarters in protest against the singer’ s action.

The court has also sentenced one Umar Farouq of Sharada quarters in Kano metropolis to 10- year imprisonment for making “derogatory statements concerning the Almighty Allah in a public argument . ”

Reports gathered that
aggrieved youths on March 4 staged a protest on the premises of the Kano Hisbah office , over what they described as an alleged blasphemous song against Prophet Muhammad.

While addressing the protesters , the Kano Hisbah Commander , Harun Ibn – Sina , said officials in the state were on top of the situation and that the man ’ s parents had been arrested and were under Police custody .

The protesters alleged that the nonchalant attitude of the government and the security agents in the state over the issue informed their decision to embark on the protest .

The convener of the protest , Idris Ibrahim ( popularly known as Baba Idris ), said , “ Our mission is to alert the government to do the needful; otherwise , we will take the law into our own hands . ”

Idris , who said similar incidents had occurred in the state without any action from the relevant authorities , warned that they would not allow Sharif – Aminu ’ s case to go unpunished.

  1. Приветствую вас! Помогите пожалуйста, с таковым вопросом…
    Открыл заем на сумму 7400 в 2011 году. Последний платеж был в 2013, бросил оплачивать.
    В 2020 году нагрянуло извещение о том, что коллекторы Укрдолг выкупили мой микрокредит и сумма 12500 гривен.
    Высказываю им, что срок исковой давности уже вышел, я читала подробнее…, на что отзываются, что у меня в договоре 30 лет.
    Как тогда действовать ? Очень благодарен.
