JUST IN: Youths protest in Kano over alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad

Scores of youths, on Wednesday, stormed the Kano Hisbah office over alleged blasphemous song against the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

The Nigerian Xpress gathered that the irate youths held placards alleging that the government and security agents in the state, had been reluctant to act on the matter.

Leader of the protest, one Idris Ibrahim (known as Baba Idris), said they came to notify the government to do the needful; otherwise, they will take the law into their hands.

He said similar incidents had happened in the state in the past that were not attended to by the authorities.

Recall that last week, one Yahaya Sharif-Aminu had composed a song containing alleged derogatory comments attributed to the Prophet Muhammad.

This prompted violence against the family members of the musician who fled the area.

Also, last Friday, the family house of the singer, located at Sharifai Quarters, in Kano Municipal Local Government Area, was set ablaze by irate youths who protested the song.

The singer is said to be a member of the Islamic Tijjaniya sect and a member of Faidha group. He is yet to speak on the matter.

While addressing the protesters, the Kano Hisbah Commander, Harun Ibn-Sina, said officials in the state were on top of the situation and that the parents of the musician had been arrested and are currently under police custody.

Also addressing the protesters was the representative of the state police commissioner, Habu Sani, who told the protesters that the matter was being investigated while efforts are being made  to arrest the fleeing singer.

He, however, urged the protesters to be law-abiding by allowing the security agents to do the needful.

He assured the gathering that the musician would not go unpunished.
