According to Daily Trust, the controversial Islamic cleric identified as Sheikh Abduljabbar Nasiru Kabara was arrested on Friday morning by the security operatives in Kano. That his arrest came in one after the Sheikh failed to answer questions during a debate with some Kano Islamic scholars.
The debate was arranged and approved by the Kano State government to get a solution for the allegation leveled at Sheikh Abduljabbar, that he insulted Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H).
There may be two things that are going to happen to the Sheikh following his arrest.
Firstly, he was accused of blasphemy.
The punishment for one who insulted Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), is to be killed after confirming the truth about the matter.
This meant that Sheikh Abduljabbar would be killed if it was confirmed by the Islamic court that he insulted Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
Secondly, according to the Kano State commissioner, Muhammad Garba, Sheikh Abduljabbar would remain in prison till 28th July 2021. The Sheikh may spend many years in prison if his case takes a long time.
