The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, on Tuesday condemned the conviction of a musician, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, for blasphemy by a sharia court in Kano.
The preacher said on his Twitter handle that it was ironic that country which pardoned Boko Haram fighters could support the killing of a man for blasphemy.
The Upper Sharia Court had on Monday sentenced Sharif-Aminu to death by hanging for blaspheming Prophet Muhammed.
Suleiman wrote: “A country that pardons terrorists wants to kill a man for blasphemy. I am sure even Saudi Arabia is shocked… the worst form of deception is self-deceit.”
