Apostle Suleiman: It Is An Irony To Pardon Terrorists, Kill Man For Blasphemy



Apostle Johnson Suleiman

The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleiman, has described as ironic that Nigeria pardons Boko Haram members but a singer is about to be killed for blasphemy.

The cleric said this in a tweet on Tuesday while reacting to the death sentence handed to a musician, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, by an Upper Sharia Court in Kano State.

In a tweet, he said: “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.”

The Federal Government recently released over 600 repentant terrorists and gave them N20,000 each to settle down.

This move has been condemned by many Nigerians.

Some states in northern Nigeria operate the Sharia system of justice.

The Sharia system, which also has its own Court of Appeal, handles both civil and criminal matters involving Muslims and its judgments can also be challenged in Nigeria’s secular Courts of Appeal and the Supreme Court.

Sentences handed down by the courts usually include floggings in cases of adultery and fornication; amputations for theft and the death penalty for blasphemy.
