Human right and Pro-Democratic group, Nigerians who are concerned, has called on the attention of President Buhari to the death sentence on Yahaya Sharif Aminu the Kano Popular singer.
Recall that report was made at the Upper Sharia Court in Kano concerning the death-sentenced of the Kano Singer Aminu to death over blasphemy.
The Pro-Democracy group, Human rights, and concerned Nigerians wrote to the state governor, Umar Ganduje, and also to the US Embassy over the court’s ruling.
The Upper Sharia Court in Kano has also allowed Yahaya Sharif Aminu to appeal the ruling within 30 days, even though he did not deny the charges leveled at him.
In the letter sent and addressed to the US Embassy, President Buhari, and Governor Ganduje, the group said judgment is repulsive to natural justice, equity, and good conscience.
The concerned groups also frowned at the attempt to religiously police the nation, saying that the country is a secular nation.
“Our constitution forbids religious policing in section 10, which prohibits the practice of state religion in any part of Nigeria, and section 38 guarantees the right to freedom of thought, religion, and conscience, including the freedom to change religion and belief.”
“We are appealing to the president and The American Embassy to prevail on the Kano state Governor to pardon the victim of this great injustice as his life is in danger at the Kano Central Prison where he’s being detained.”
The group also said that they have been in touch with Yahaya Sharif Aminu, and he reveals ti them that has been kept in the worst place
