This is not the first time that people in northern Nigeria would be passing a death sentence on someone for alleged blasphemy. It is not the first time they are killing someone or beheading a person for alleged blasphemy.
In August 2020, a musician in Kano was sentenced to death by hanging for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad.
An upper Sharia court said Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, 22, was guilty of committing blasphemy in a song he circulated via WhatsApp in March.
Mr Sharif-Aminu did not deny the charges.
Judge Khadi Aliyu Muhammad Kani said he could appeal against the verdict.
Also in September 2020, the United Nations Children’s Fund condemned the sentencing of a 13-year-old for blasphemy.
Peter Hawkins, the UNICEF Representative in Nigeria, described as wrong the sentencing of Omar Farouk to 10 years in prison.
Sharia law court found Farouk guilty of using “disparaging language against Allah” while arguing with a friend.
Farouk is among many others who have been tried under Sharia law.
