The leader of INRI Evangelical spiritual church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has called on the Kano state government to temper justice with mercy in the case of the singer, Yahaya Shefiff who was charged with blasphemy and issued a death sentence.
In a statement he shared, he made it known that if Sheriff is killed, it will mean that the country is ruled by a terrorist.
According to him, killing the singer will amount to spilling blood of the innocent.
“I am still begging, killing of Yahaya Sharif will mean we have a terrorist ruling us, I will advise the governor of Kano not to attest to this. If he does, it means he isn’t a good man. He should forget about religion. He needs to temper justice with mercy, he needs to forgive this young man,” he said
“We are serving the same God in a different way, I’m begging that he should be forgiven. He is a star, he has a mission on earth, killing him means killing the hope of those he will help tomorrow. He should be forgiven,” he added
