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
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
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.
