The Kano state government has been asked to hasten the execution of 22-year-old singer Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, who was found guilty of blasphemy few weeks ago.

This was made known by the Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria today in a statement released by its secretary Nafi’u Baba-Ahmad, berated those asking for the convict to be pardoned.

The council said that the case was purely an islamic case and is in tandem with the religion, culture and wishes of people of Kano, and 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.”
