“I killed my parents over blasphemous comments against Prophet Muhammad”

Munkaila Ahmadu who killed his parents in Gagarawa Local Government Area of Jigawa State said he did so because they uttered blasphemous comments against the prophet Muhammad.

In a recorded video from the Police custody, Mr Ahmadu, a singer and a member of the Tijjaniyya Islamic sect, said his parents mocked and called him a mad person and opposed him being a praise singer for the prophet.

Extrajudicial killings in the name of blasphemy have in recent times become more rampant in the north-a trend many observers believe to be deeply worrying.
