The Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria has reacted to the death sentence imposed on 22-year-old singer Yahaya Sharif-Aminu for blasphemy.

The council has asked the Kano state government to execute him.

The council in a statement released by its secretary Nafi’u Baba-Ahmad, berated those asking for the convict to be pardoned.

It added that the case is purely an Islamic affair and 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 statement read; 

“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.”
