Abrogate Sharia Law, Group tells FG



Igbo group, Voice from the East, VEAST, has asked the federal government to repeal Sharia Law in Nigeria, which they described as “murderous and an Islamic expansionist agenda.”

Piqued by the death sentence given to Yahaya Sharif Aminu in Kano over alleged blasphemy, the group in a statement issued to journalists in Enugu after its ad-hoc meeting on the death sentence, called on the federal government to jettison Sharia Law and Sharia Code without delay.

The statement signed by the convener of VEAST, Comrade Kindness Jonah, noted that because Sharia is evil, that was why Mrs. Bridget Agbahime, an Igbo woman in Wambai Market, was killed in Kano in 2016 for the “satanic flimsy excuse of speaking against Prophet Mohammed.”

The group wondered what blasphemy is doing in the constitution of a nation said to be a secular state.

“It is an aberration to implement Sharia Code in a  secular state as started in 1999 by the then governor of  Zamfara State, a fiendish tonic needed by some disgruntled Muslims to unleash callous death sentences to people they can accuse of speaking against their prophet,” it said.

The group maintained that Sharia remains anti-democracy and anti-modernity and so archaic that no meaningful person or nation can ever fathom the satanic idiocy enshrined in its implementation.

Jonah noted that the condemnation of Aminu, a musician in Kano, by an upper sharia court for speaking against Prophet Mohammed was the worst verbalisation of man’s inhumanity to man.

“Enough of this madness and murderous Islamic code called Sharia in Nigeria. Enough is enough! Nigerians should rise up now and mull on the federal government to obliterate this satanic-demonic Islamic code of destruction and death from the constitution before it is too late,” he warned.
