Nigerian activist and co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls movement, Aisha Yesufu, has condemned Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state, for expressing readiness to sign the death warrant of Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, a singer sentenced to death over alleged blasphemy.
Recall that, Ganduje, speaking at a gathering of religious leaders, legal practitioners, and government officials on Thursday, had said he won’t delay in signing the warrant for the execution of Sharif-Aminu if he does not appeal the Sharia Court ruling that sentenced him to death by hanging on August 10.
Yesufu in a response tweet on Friday said that the governor should also be sentenced to death for allegedly collecting bribe.
“Ganduje was caught on camera allegedly collecting bribe. In sharia law, any gift to public servant belongs to the state talkless of one caught collecting bribe.
“There is no immunity in sharia law. Ganduje should be the one sentenced to death not signing death warrant.”
