Nigerians have reacted to President Buhari’s media aide, Bashir Ahmad’s tweet which surfaced in the wake of the death penalty handed out to a Kano singer, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu who was found guilty of committing blasphemy for a song he circulated via WhatsApp in March 2020.
Bashir Ahmad had in the tweet shared in 2015, supported the death penalty for blasphemy which he described as his “belief”.
The tweet read;
I cant pretend or keep silent. I support the death penalty for BLASPHEMY. That’s my belief and I do not and will never support #SaveKanoNine
The tweet has led to an outcry from Nigerians who asked how he is different from Boko Haram insurgents who mete out same treatment to those they accuse of blasphemy.
