The founder of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide Apostle Johnson Suleman has broken his silence after a court handed death sentence to a 22-year-old man, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu.
The Kano Upper Shari’a Court on Monday condemned the musician for blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad.
Reacting on his Twitter page on Tuesday, the fiery cleric slammed the sentence, saying even Saudi Arabia will be shocked at.
Apostle Suleman, like several other Nigerians on social media, wondered how the death sentence would be awarded for blasphemy while Boko Haram fighters are pardoned.
“A country that pardons terrorists want to kill a man for blasphemy. I am sure even Saudi Arabia is shocked..the worst form of deception is self-deceit.”
Sharif-Aminu, a resident of Sharifai in Kano metropolis, was accused of committing blasphemy against the prophet in a song he circulated via WhatsApp in March.
The incident caused riots in the city. His family house was burnt down in the process and the government pressured into arresting him as the mob bayed for blood.
