An Upper Sharia Court in Kano State has sentenced nine persons including one Sheikh Abdul Nyas to death over blasphemous and inciting statements on the prophet of Islam.

Spokesperson of the Kano Sharia Courts, Ibrahim Baba-Jibo, made this known while addressing a news conference this afternoon in Kano.

Early last month, a group of Tijjaniyya sect members, during Maulud in Kano, blasphemed the prophet of Islam and the action was followed by widespread protest in the state.

After series of hearing, the Kano State Upper Sharia Court, under Section 110 and Section 382B of the Sharia Penal Code 2000, the accused persons were sentenced to death.

However, four other persons namely Alkassim Abubakar, Yahaya Abubakar, Isa Abubakar and Abdullahi Abubakar, were discharged and acquitted as they were not found wanting by the court.

The nine people will be executed once the Kano State Governor appends his signature on their execution form.
