The Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria, SCSN, has advised Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State to approve the execution of the musician, Shariff Yahaya Shariff, recently sentenced to death by the Shari’ah court in Kano for alleged blasphemy.

According to a statement by the council the act will serve as a deterrent to others adding that this will urge them to either say what is right or keep silent.

“The council commends the courage of Qadi Ali Kani of the Upper Shari’ah Court Gyadi-Gyadi, Kano in the case of C. O. P. vs Shariff Yahaya Shariff No. CR/43/2020 decided on 10th August, 2020 where the accused person was charged, tried and convicted for blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad.

“The calls by some so-called human rights groups to pardon the culprit should not deter the state government from doing the right thing as this case is purely an Islamic affair and in consonance with the religion, culture and wishes of not only the people of Kano, but the majority population of Nigeria who are Muslims.

“The council reminded Nigerians, especially the secular human rights group that the judgment is in line with the Supreme Court judgment in the case of Abubakar Shalla vs State (2007) 12 MJSC at page 52 to 53 paragraph G-B, which says ‘that the position of the Law under Shari’ah is that any sane and adult Muslim, who insults, defames, or utters words or acts which are capable of bringing into disrepute, odium, contempt of the Holy Prophet, such a person has committed a serious crime which is punishable by death.”

“We therefore call on Muslims to be mindful of their utterances as the Prophet (SAW) said, ‘Who ever believes in Allah and the Last Say should say what is right or keep silent.”


  1. You have said it all, according to the shari’a law not any other laws, that’s what serves him right, did project Muhammad offend him before doing so? Someone needs to caution his/her utterances that capable of causing problem among people.

  2. In whatever you are doing, someone needs to caution his tongue because it’s most poisonous in our body, it may save you or kill you. Look at it now, everybody should learn his/her lesson from this. May God forgive him his sins.

  3. This is very bad.
    So we now decided who to kill and who lives, whereas we didn’t give life’s to anyone.
    It’s so bad.

  4. What a pity.
    What a painful death.
    He knows his time has come.
    He would know when he would take his last breath.
    His family would be in pains.

  5. I don’t know what to say but to beg for mercy for him
    When we sin against God, he forgives us, so they should tamper justice with mercy
