Muhammed Lawal Gusau, the man who volunteered to sponsor a law firm to assist the Kano State Government in prosecuting a musician, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, has reportedly threatened to kill a United Kingdom-based Nigerian woman, Fakhrriyya Hashim, for speaking against blasphemy.
According to SaharaReporters, the man in question had forwarded a letter to Kano State Attorney-General, through his lawyer, Abubakar A. Ashat & Co, that he desired to render a “selfless service towards the advancement and upliftment of the goals and ideals of Islam in all positive spheres”.
Gusau in the letter also stated that he was ready to dedicate all resources to ensure that the musician was hanged for blasphemy.
Gusau also condemned Fakhrriyya for speaking against the death sentence of the musician.
Gusau in a post on Twitter wrote, “You and Falana can go to hell for all I care. You can come down to Nigeria and marry Falana to show the world you are a real apostate and a kafir. My last advice to you is to be careful with the way you go on attacking Islam and Muslims. If you think that UK is a sanctuary and protection to you, please ask your co-traveller and neighbour, Salman Rushdie. Am sure he will tell you that death is better than living like a hunter animals, always running and hiding. So better take my gentle advice and stop the recklessness or else you will soon regret both here in this life and hereafter.”
It was also learnt that her family members, who live in Kano, are being harassed.
