Hundreds of angry youths stormed Kano Hisbah office, on Wednesday, to stage a protest over an alleged blasphemous song against Muhammad by a musician, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu.
The protesters, who were armed with placards, lamented that Kano State Government and its security agencies have been reluctant in taking action against Yahaya, who composed a song allegedly containing derogatory comments attributed to Holy Prophet Muhammad.
The convener of the protest, Idris Ibrahim said they came to notify the government to do the needful; otherwise, they would take the law into their hands.
We gathered that last Friday, the family house of the singer located at Sharifai quarters in Kano Municipal Local government was set ablaze by irate youths who invaded the area in protest against the song.
While addressing the protesters, the Kano Hisbah Commander, Harun Ibn-Sina, said officials in the state are on top of the situation and the parents of the musician have been arrested and are currently in police custody.
Also addressing the protesters was the representative of Kano Police Commissioner, Habu Sani, who told the protesters that the police are making efforts to arrest the fleeing singer.
The representative of the police chief, who identified himself as Hamza, urged the protesters to be law-abiding citizens and allow the security agents to do the needful.
