Youth in Kano burnt down a sharia court scheduled to hear a case of blasphemy against the prophet of Islam.
The court, situated at Rijiyar Lemo, was razed down before the man alleged to have blasphemed the prophet was brought in.
The youth also took to the streets protesting an alleged blasphemous comment by the leader of a sect, Tijjaniyya, Abdul Nyass.
The youth held up placards condemning the statement made against Prophet Mohammed.
The aggrieved youths marched towards Mandawari and Dandago, and headed to the Emir of Kano’s palace.
The sect leader allegedly made the statement last week during his routine preaching at Goron Dutse, Kano metropolis.
All efforts to contact the police spokesperson, Musa Majia, proved abortive as he failed to pick the calls to his phone.
The protesting youth also blocked Kano government house in their protest. Heavily armed security personnel were drafted to secure the town.
