Shekau reportedly condemns conviction of Kano-based musician for blasphemy

The Upper Sharia Court in Kano State on Monday sentenced a young musician, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, to death for blaspheming Prophet Muhammad.

The musician’s conviction had triggered angry reactions from Nigerians who faulted the Sharia law that permits the punishment.
