Man Faces Court for Rejoicing over Kano Bomb Blast

A man identified as Muhammad Yusuf, faced the Sabon Gari Shari’a Court in Kano for allegedly celebrating “in the presence of a large crowd”, after he returned from the scene of last week Monday’s bomb blast in the state.
It has been learnt that he was charged with inciting and disturbing public peace.
Mr. Lawan Hassan, the Chairman of Gidan Boss Mechanics Association, Kano, who reported the matter at the Fagge Divisional Police station, on July 31, accused Yusuf of openly rejoicing when he returned from the scene of two bomb blasts, which killed about 24 people, and injured many others.
On behalf of the prosecuting side, Mr. Ahmad Musam, the police officer, told the court that they received the complaint on the same day of the bomb blast and that after necessary investigation, the First Information Report was drafted and the matter taken to court the following day.
The plaintiff pleaded guilty to the crime and the presiding judge, Abubakar Ayagi, ruled that the court had jurisdiction to hear the case and cited Section 386, Subsection 37 of the Kano State Shari’a Law, 2000.
The case has been adjourned to August 15.
