Hausa singer bags death sentence for blasphemy (Photos)

Nigerians are still reeling from the news that a Kano Upper Shari’a Court has handed a death sentence to a 22-year-old singer for blaspheming against Prophet Muhammad.

Back in March, it was reported that youths in Kano state stormed the Kano Hisbah office and demanded that action be taken against Yahaya Sharif-Aminu for a song he composed, containing alleged derogatory comments attributed to the Prophet Muhammad.

The youths warned that they will take laws into their hands if action is not taken.

Prior to the protest, the youths on Friday, February 28, stormed the family house of the singer located at Sharifai quarters in Kano Municipal Local Government Area, prompting them to flee their home. The house was then set ablaze by irate youths.

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