The trial of a Kano cleric, Sheikh Abduljabbar Kabara, was stalled due to ill health of the judge, Ibrahim Sarki-Yola, of an Upper Shari’a Court, Kano, on Thursday.

The Kano government charged Mr. Kabara with four counts bordering on blasphemous comments against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on August 10, October 25 and December 20, 2019.

At the resumed sitting, Kano State Shari’a Court of Appeal spokesman Muzammil Ado-Fagge told journalists on Thursday the case was stalled due to the poor state of health of the judge.

“The court had on May 12, ordered the Legal Aid Council of Nigeria (LACN) headquarters to provide legal representation for Mr. Kabara in the ongoing alleged blasphemy trial.

Prosecution counsel Suraj Sa’eda (SAN) alleged that the defendant made a blasphemous comment against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in his marriage with Nana Safiyya.

Sa’eda cited Section 93 (40) of Jautul Fara as well as Sahihul Bukhari Hadiths 1,365 and 1,428 to buttress his claim.
