Mr. Sharif who is a member of the Islamic Tijjaniya sect and Faidha group, composed a song blaspheming Prophet Mohammed and circulated it via WhatsApp in March 2020.

Residents of the state got angry when they heard the song and started a protest. They burnt down the singer’s family home and led a procession to the Kano Hisbah Command’s headquarters demanding that he must be tried.

After several days in the court, the Judge found him guilty and sentenced him to death by hanging. He has 30 days to appeal the judgment.
