Primate Elija Ayodele, the leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has warned that kano-based Musician Sharif-Aminu Yahaya’s sentence should be reversed.
In his statement, killing Sharif-Aminu will be the spilling of innocent blood for nothing.
Sharif-Aminu Yahaya was recently sentenced to death by Upper Sharia Court in Kano state for blaspheming Prophet Mohammed.
Aminu was given an option to appeal the ruling, or he will die by hanging.
Prophet Ayodele, in a piece of information given to Info Xclusive Media on Friday, cautioned against killing the innocent young talented musician.
Primate Ayodele made this known that religion preaches love and tolerance, and killing of the young talented musician Aminu Sharif will go against the religious preaching.
Primate Ayodele referred to the terrorist group Boko Haram, saying that they were granted amnesty, not even that they deserve to live, because they kill several Nigerians, yet they were pardoned.
‘‘If they should kill that young boy, they would be spilling innocent blood. Insurgency is one of the problems in the north, Boko haram has been killing lots of them yet when Boko Haram members were captured, they were granted amnesty, that boy has done nothing that warrants him being condemned to death.
“I’m not poke-nosing into their religion, but I believe every religion preaches love and tolerance, if Yahaya Shariff is killed because of blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed, where is the place of religion that preaches love and tolerance?
“The same tolerance employed in the case of Boko Haram insurgence should also be employed here.”
