Here is a photo of the 22-year-old singer who has been sentenced to death by hanging for blaspheming against Prophet Muhammad.
An upper Sharia court in the Hausawa Filin Hockey area of the state said Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, 22, was guilty of committing blasphemy for a song he made viral via WhatsApp in March.
Mr Sharif-Aminu did not deny the charges against him.
Judge Khadi Aliyu Muhammad Kani said he could appeal against the verdict.
He gave the guilty verdict on Monday, August 10, 2020.
The singer who is currently in detention, was no where to be found after he composed the song.
Protesters had burnt down his family home and gathered outside the headquarters of the Islamic police, known as the Hisbah, demanding action against him.
