Musician, identify as Yahaya Sharif Aminu, has been sentence to death by hanging for one of his songs alleged to be blasphemous against Prophet Muhammad.
Aminu was sentence to death today by Kano Sharia Court.
The presiding judge, Khadi Aliyu Muhammad Kani, found Aminu guilty and sentenced him to death by hanging.
The musician is said to be a member of the Islamic Tijjaniya sect and Faidha group.
This comes weeks after a humanist, Mubarak Bala, was arrested by the police in Kano and issued death threats over a Facebook post said to be blasphemous against Prophet Muhammad.
His whereabouts remain unknown despite a court order mandating the police to release Bala.
