Nigeria cleric sentenced to death for blasphemy
An Islamic court in Nigeria has sentenced a cleric to death by hanging for insulting the Prophet Muhammad in the northern city of Kano. Abdulazeez Dauda, popularly known as Abdul Inyass, was convicted after a trial held in secret to avoid protests. Five followers of Abdul Inyass were also sentenced to death last year. These are the first death sentences for blasphemy handed down by a Nigerian Sharia court; those delivered for other offences have not been carried out.
