I believe Senator Yerima has himself requested for his case to be tried at a competent Sharia court. Being a man of conscience, I am sure the Senator begs for the justice of the best judicial system that he believes in and that he helped give the people. Even if and after the ICPC delivers its justice on the very spiritual Senator, we as a nation must agree that he must be then transferred to the Sharia court for their capital punishment for his crimes if found guilty.
Senator Yerima is being investigated for alleged theft of the money of Zamfara State and therefore is subject to the legal processes of the State.
The Prophet of Islam is quoted to have said: “The previous nations were destroyed, because they let off persons of high rank and punished the poor and the helpless”.
Quran 4:135 “O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do.”
We are tired of having Nigeria destroyed due to the injustice of those in power. In China they have their brand of Sharia law and they apply it for the poor as they do for the rich. Today, China is perhaps the strongest and wealthiest nation on the planet.
Nigerians will all like all those convicted of stealing to be dealt with by Sharia capital punishment courts after whatever of the loot that can be recovered has been. We want to see their heads cut off or hands cut off as permanent symbol and remedy for their deadly criminality.
Senator Ahmad Yerima obviously should be dignified with the justice of God.
