JUST IN!! Hope At Last As Kano Singer Appeals Death Sentence

1 min


 

 

Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, the musician that a Shari’a court in Kano sentenced to death for blasphemy, has filed an appeal.

He was sentenced to death by hanging on August 10, after he was found guilty of committing blasphemy in a song against the Prophet Muhammad.

TheCable had reported how the development stirred an outcry among many Nigerians.

Despite public outcry, the Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria asked Kano state government to execute the court judgment.

Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, had said he would not waste a minute to sign Sharif-Aminu’s death sentence if he failed to file an appeal within 30 days.
