FLASHBACK| Islamic Scholar Sentenced To Death By Hanging, Flown To Abuja By DSS

 

An Upper Shari’ah Court in Kano yesterday sentenced an Islamic scholar, Abdulaziz Dauda, popularly known as Abdul Inyass, to death for blasphemous statements against the holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

“This court has sentenced you, Abdulaziz Dauda also known as Abdul Inyass, to death by hanging for blasphemous statements against Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and three years jail term for inciting public disturbance,” he said.  The judge said Inyass had 30 days to appeal the judgment.

Abdulaziz Dauda was charged on a two-count charge of blasphemy against the holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and inciting public disturbance contrary to Section 275 of Kano State Shari’ah Penal Code Law 2000.

Abdulaziz Dauda was sued by the Kano state government after delivering a lecture in the state which caused a riot that led to the burning of a court at Rijar-Lemo quarters.

According to the charge sheet, Inyass had while delivering the lecture on May 13, 2015 made blasphemous statements against the holy prophet.
The state prosecution counsel, Barrister Lamido Abba Soron-Dinki said that the convict had pleaded guilty to the charges levelled against him in one of his appearances before the court.

The judgment was delivered amid tight security as heavily armed DSS operatives were deployed to the court. After the judgment, the convicted cleric was flown to Abuja by DSS officials.

    WHERE IS OUR BUDGET? THE ISSUE IS THAT THE APC AS A PARTY IS ASHAMED, CONFUSED, AFRAID, AND DUMBFOUNDED. IF U’RE ASKING WHERE ARE THOSE PEOPLE WHO WERE ABUSING GEJ AND SHOUTED CHANGE, SAY WHERE IS OBJ, AMAECHI, FASOLA, GOV,ADAMS, OYEGUN, LAI MOHAMMED, FALANA, SOYINKA, SANUSI, TAMBUWAL, AND OTHERS. WHY ARE THEY QUIET? THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY AND THE JUDICIARY SHOULD NOT ALLOW THE EXECUTIVE TO RUBBISH THIS NATION. BETWEEN GMB AND GEJ, WHO IS MORE RECKLESS, CLUELESS, LAWLESS, ACCOUNTABLE? APC SHOUTS IMPUNITY DURING GEJ’S TENURE. WITHIN JUST 7 MONTHS OF THE APC’S GOVT., IMPUNITY HAS BEEN THE ORDER OF THE DAY. ITS A BIG SHAME TO THE APC FAMILY, OBJ, ATIKU, TIUNBU AND OTHERS. THE N/A IS DEAD. IF HE SILENCES METUH AND FANI-KAYODE WITH ARREST, THAT MEANS HE HAS NO OPPOSITION AND CAN POCKET NIGERIA BUT GOD’LL NOT ALLOW HIM. GMB’LL LEAVE AND NIGERIA’LL REMAIN EXCEPT IF GOD SANCTIONS BIAFRA AND HE WILL IJN, AMEN.

    NNAMDI KANU VS BUHARI: PEOPLE ARE NOT ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS. OR ARE THEY AFRAID TO ASK THE RIGHT QUESTION? WHERE ARE OUR RESPECTED SANS, LAWYERS, HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVISTS, CIVIL SOCIETIES? ONE SHOULD ASK BUHARI THAT SINCE NNAMDI KANU DID NOT ENTER NIGERIA WITH HIS PASSPORTS, HOW COME HE WAS CHECKED OUT BY BRITISH IMMIGRATION SERVICE? WITH WHAT DID HE BOARD THE PLANE THAT BROUGHT HIM TO NIGERIA? WAS HE NOT CHECKED IN BY THE NIGERIA IMMIGRATION? HAS BUHARI QUERIED THE IMMIGRATION TO FIND OUT WHO SMUGGLED KANU INTO NIGERIA WITHOUT A PASSPORT? DID HE CONTACT LONDON TO ASK HOW KANU PASSED THROUGH? OR IS BUHARI TRYING TO DEMARKET NIGERIA AGAIN BY TELLING THE WORLD THAT OUR IMMIGRATION SERVICE IS WEAK? IS HE SAYING THAT BRITISH IMMIGRATION IS ALSO WEAK? IS BUHARI THE RIGHT PERSON TO DETAIN AND ACCUSE KANU OF SUPPOSSEDLY IMMIGRATION OFFENCE EVEN A HIGH COURT HAS GRANTED HIM BAIL? THERE’S SOMETHING BUHARI IS HIDING FROM NIGERIANS. WE NEED ANSWERS.

      Comment…Any moron can claim the supremacy of Islamic laws. But the fact remains that Nigeria is governed by the Constitution which prioritize the sanctity of human life and upholds freedom of speech.

    This story is vague and inconclusive, although there is a picture of a man that looked as if he has been hanged. The story actually ended up by the writer saying, the DSS were at the court, and immediately after the judgement the muslim cleric was flown to Abuja. It was not specifically stated whether he was hanged and the carcass was taken to Abuja or whether he was taken to Abuja alive and later hanged in Abuja. I will advice that reports of this nature shoud be clear and straight forward.

    Comment…if a man blasphemes against a prophet of the Almighty, will divine justice not bring him retribution? what a man sows, he reaps. What man is it who is qualified to pass judgement for the Almighty? GOD IS NOT MOCKED!

    Comment…This is the law of moses. The law was giving to find faults in people, it was giving to kill people. the law is a demand. But thank God for grace. grace gives life, it makes u perfect in Gods presence even when u are not. Thank God for Christ who came and abolish the law and gave us grace. thank God I m a christian. I m not in boundage. glory

    Comment…Those that speak against the prophet re sentence to death while those that speak against God re set free. What a religion ? what did the man say that warrant death or is it that court is burnt that he is sentence to death ? God is watching every action of man and will judge . man should be careful with life .

    I wonder why these people wants to turn nigeria upside down.Osinbajo being the vice president,does it simple mean that he dont have a say.I noticed that apc just used him to win election.Is it not 419 that they did to the man of God.But i know God he is serving,that God will soon do His own.God is over there watching.He wants human beings to finish their own before coming out.One foolish ignorant thing about blacks is that they dont learn from the past.I remember when abacha was doing his own,they were warning him but God the Creator of universe waited him to change before He striked.God is on the way coming with His fiery anger that cannot be stopped.Lets watchout.If they refuse to repent,…….hmmmmmmmmm
