Supreme Council For Shari’ah Asks Kano State Government To Execute 22 Years Old Singer



The Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria has released a statement asking the Kano state government to execute 22-year-old singer, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu.

Few weeks ago, the Shari’ah court in Kano State found the musician guilty of blasphemy for recording a song which they deemed insulting to the prophet of Islam.

There has been pressure from human rights organizations mounting on the Kano State government not to carry out such a devilish act.

But the statement which was issued by the Council’s secretary, Nafi’u Baba-Ahmad rubbished those calling for the release of the accused saying that the ruling is in consonance with Islamic laws and the wish of majority of Nigerians who are muslims.

The statement reads; “The calls by some so-called human rights groups to pardon the culprit should not deter the state government from doing the right thing.

This case is purely an Islamic affair, in consonance with the religion, culture and wishes of not only the people of Kano, but the majority of the population of Nigeria who are Muslims.

The council further wishes to emphatically remind all Nigerians especially the secular human rights groups that the judgement is in line with the Supreme Court judgement.”
