Kano-based singer, Yahaya Sharif, who was sentenced to death by an upper Shariah Court for Blasphemy has been given a 30 day grace to appeal the judgement.
Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, at a stakeholders meeting said the state government has accepted the judgment passed by the Sharia Court adding that if by the end of the 30-days grace the convict had not appealed, he would not waste time to sign the execution order.
Ganduje said the state government shall wait and follow the case up to the appeal court should the convict appeal and if he further appeals to the Supreme court, the state shall follow the case there. If the Supreme Court upholds the two lower court judgments, the execution order will be signed.
