The Senior Pastor and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman has come out to condemn the death sentence passed on a 30-year-old singer for blasphemy.
Suleman expressed shock that Nigeria which pardoned Boko Haram terrorists could sentence a man to death by hanging for blasphemy.
The Senior Pastor’s reaction came after An Upper Sharia Court sitting in Kano had convicted Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, to death by hanging for comments against Prophet Mohammad.
The trial Judge, Khadi Muhammad Ali-Kani had ruled that Sharif-Aminu’s audio remark against Prophet Mohammad was against Islamic law and was sentenced to death by hanging.
Apostle Suleman in a tweet wrote: “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.”
Recall that the Nigerian government had recently graduated and reintegrated 601 repentant Boko Haram members into the society.
According to the DAILY POST report, the repentant terrorists reintegrated into the society included those from Cameroon, Chad, and Nigeria.
