This is sharia justice. his sharia law. Respect it!

In Nigeria, Sharia has been instituted as a main body of civil and criminal law in 9 Muslim-majority and in some parts of 3 Muslim-plurality states.

As of 2012, the following 9 states have instituted Sharia:

Zamfara State (January 27, 2000)
Kano State (June 21, 2000)
Sokoto State
Katsina State
Bauchi State (June 2001)
Borno State
Jigawa State
Kebbi State
Yobe State

the following 3 states have also instituted sharia in some parts with large Muslim populations

Kaduna State
Niger State (May 4, 2000)
Gombe State

She did not “insult’ that infernal prophet but wo what if she did. I am sue part of the reason they beheaded her was because she was the wife of senior pastor of Deeper Life Bible Church, Brigade Quarters in Kano state. And for the records, she was beaten and stabbed to death with dangerous weapons.

Here is her husband’s statement in his own words;

“Mrs Bridget who sold plastic materials at the popular Kofar Wambai market had wanted to close her shop on Thursday June 2, 2016 by 4.30pm to go for a church programme. Her neighbour simply identified as Dauda who is a Muslim came in front of her shop to wash his hands and feet in preparation for his own prayers.

Mummy as fondly called by her church members told him to leave the front of her shop that she wants to lock the door. The man refused and told her to wait till he finishes with what he’s doing. (N.B; Mrs Bridget had been having serious problems with Dauda to the extent that their matter has been reported to the market’s association numerously).

So she persisted that he should leave her shop, instead of complying the man started raining abuses on her saying that he would deal with her in the market. After people started gathering around due to the insults and abuses, the man calmed down and left.

The woman thinking all had ended -went to meet her husband who also has a shop in the same market but different location to report as usual. Both her and her husband went to meet the landlord of her shop one Alhaji Mustapha – a prominent trader in the market which has been their advocate -to table the latest issue at hand.

While they were reporting the case to Mustapha in his shop, Dauda and his reinforced gang gathered and started chanting that the woman must die for blaspheming against prophet Mohammed. The Alhaji pleaded with them to come back in a few days time promising to settle the matter but they vehemently refused and started stoning him. The Alhaji ran for his life leaving the Mr Mike and his wife in his shop…

The woman knowing that her end had come -knelt down and started praying before she was beaten and clubbed to death by the mob right in front of her husband.

Meanwhile, Dauda and his cohorts have been arrested and are currently in Kano State police station.. While Mr Mike has left his base located at Warri road and is currently at an undisclosed hotel in the metropolis over fear of his life.”

“Nigerian court acquits 5 suspects in lynching of Christian woman accused of blasphemy,” Christian Daily, November 9, 2016:

On June 2, Bridget Patience Agbahime died after an angry mob beat her to death. The incident happened after a young man began screaming that the 74-year-old Christian street vendor had insulted the prophet Muhammad, Agenzia Fides report.

However, witnesses have denied the blasphemy accusation against Agbahime. Those who knew her also testified that she was respectful of other people. Police arrested five suspects in connection with Agbahime’s murder, but the court in Kano acquitted all of them on Nov. 3.

This was not the first time that a street vendor was accused of blasphemy and died in a similar fashion in the region. On May 29, Methodus Chimaije, 24, was lynched in Pandogari in Niger.

Jama’atu Nasril Islam, the biggest Islamic Association of Nigeria, released a statement condemning the murders of Agbahime and Chimaije. The group’s leader, Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, described the lynching as criminal acts that should be condemned.

In a separate incident in Zamfara State, eight people died after a mob torched the house of a Muslim man who tried to save a Christian student from an attempted lynching. The student had also been accused of blasphemy, The Independent details.

According to local police, the Christian student was accused of making blasphemous comments against Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. Eyewitnesses told the News Agency of Nigeria that some of his Muslim classmates beat him up in public until Muslim passerby Tajudeen intervened.

Tajudeen reportedly took the Christian victim to the hospital, an act which caused the mob to turn on him instead. Eight people were inside the house when the incident happened. Luckily, the man and his wife survived.

The torching of Tajudeen’s house has sown fear of religious violence in Nigeria. President Muhammadu Buhari condemned the incident as “barbaric and unacceptable.”
