INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church’s Primate Elijah Ayodele has stated that killing a Kano-based singer, Yahaya Sharif for blasphemy, would prove that Nigeria is ruled by a terrorist.
The cleric called on Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano to temper justice with mercy.
Primate Ayodele had previously warned that killing the singer will amount to spilling the innocent’s blood.
The cleric in a statement released on Friday, said, “I am still begging, killing of Yahaya Sharif will mean we have a terrorist ruling us, I will advise the governor of Kano not to attest to this. If he does, it means he isn’t a good man. He should forget about religion. He needs to temper justice with mercy, he needs to forgive this young man.”
“We are serving the same God in a different way, I’m begging that he should be forgiven.”
”He is a star, he has a mission on earth, killing him means killing the hope of those he will help tomorrow. He should be forgiven.’’
