After fifteen months of being prosecuted, a Kano Shari’a Court has sentenced a popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abduljabar Nasiru Kabara, to death by hanging over blasphemy.
Kabara, who commands a large followership in Kano, was found guilty of making blasphemous statements against the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (SAW).
The cleric was arrested last year on July 16 and he has been facing trial since until he got sentenced to death earlier today.
The cleric has the right to appeal the judgement.
