Abubakar Shekau, leader of the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist sect, has condemned the death sentence handed down to a musician identified as Yahaya Sharif-Aminu over alleged blasphemy.

Noble Reporters Media reports that a Sharia Court in Kano State on Monday found Sharif-Aminu guilty of blasphemy for releasing a song insulting the Holy Prophet Muhammad.

But the death sentence has sparked reactions and condemnations by concerned Nigerians who faulted the ruling and called for the abolition of the Sharia Law.

However, in a fresh audiotape, Shekau berated the ruling noting that there is no difference between the accused and those who sentenced him to death.

He said: “There is no difference between the ‘blasphemer’ and those who sentenced him to death.”

An Upper Shari’a Court sitting at Hausawa Quarters in Kano has sentenced a 22-year old singer Yahaya Aminu Sharif to death by hanging for blasphemy against Prophet of Muhammad.

In his ruling on Monday, the Shari’a court Khadi, Aliyu Muhammad Kani, found Sharif guilty of the one-count charge bordering on derogatory comment contained in one of his songs.

Sharif, a resident of Sharifai quarters in Kano municipal, was accused of committing blasphemy against the prophet in a song he circulated via WhatsApp in March 2020.

Sharif’s action came to public knowledge on 4th of March, 2020, when hundreds of angry youths stormed the Kano Hisbah board headquarters in protest against what they considered an uncomplimentary assault on prophet Muhammad.

The youths accused government and security agencies of undue protection and failure to act appropriately against Sharif.

The irate youths had earlier razed down the family house of the singer after his disappearance when they invaded the resident.
