Recently, we brought the news of a 22-year-old musician that was sentenced to death by hanging for singing against prophet Muhammad, and Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to the news.
The news sparked different reactions by both foreigners and fellow Nigerians who found the news disturbing with some Human Right Activists currently working on the present situation.
See some social media users reactions below;
The fact that muslims keep trying to fight prophet Mohammed/Allah's battles doesn't sit right with me.

People need to remember that they are human first before they are anything, if you are not human then you don't even have any religion. Blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed shouldn't be enough reason a man should die. This is just basic madness.

For not showing reverence to the fact that Jesus is God's son, ALL Muslims should be in Christian jails. For not believing Mohammed was God sent, ALL Christians should be hanged. That's the textbook definition of blasphemy.

Terrorism deserves no penalty in Northern Nigeria.
Corruption deserves no penalty in Northern Nigeria.
This is so because in Northern Nigeria, terrorism and corruption is no blasphemy against Mohammed.
But blasphemy against Mohammed deserves death penalty in Northern Nigeria.

Who the hell is Prophet Mohammed that y'all had to kill for his memory? How long has he been dead that y'all are still killing for him?
It means whatever he stood for is trash. His life, memory, works, believes are trashy 🚮🚮🚮, if you had to kill another human in his memory.

Not everyone will share your beliefs and that's okay, but killing someone just because they committed a crime invented by religion to protect to stifle freedom of speech is a travesty!
The radical North is different from the South. Stop killing in the name of Mohammed and Allah

Religion of peace that would slaughter the innocent at any ‘un-islamic’ utterance towards Mohammed. So ironical
ABOLISH SHARIA LAW IN NIGERIA!!!
