Controversial Kano cleric, Sheikh Abduljabar fails in bid to set aside recommendations against him

The outcomes of a panel after a debate between Sheikh Abduljabar Nasiru Kabara, a cleric, who was accused of a making a blasphemous statement against the Prophet of Islam, and other clerics, stand, a court ruling has said.

The State High Court, presided over by Chief Judge, Justice Nura Sagir, refused to set aside the proceedings, verdict and recommendations of Professor Salisu Shehu of Bayero University, Kano.

The debate between Sheikh Kabara and some Kano Islamic scholars was conducted in the state on 10 July, 2021, and the Sheikhs were said to have defeated him.

Sheikh Kabara later rejected the outcome of the debate, insisting that he was not given fair hearing, something that resulted to his legal actions against the recommendation of the debate.

Professor Salisu Shehu of Bayero University, who was the anchor of the debate, recommended that, Sheikh Abduljabar Nasiru Kabara, had failed woefully in the debate and as such it left to government to take appropriate measures against him.

However, Kabara rushed to court, kicking against the outcomes of the debate, but the State Chief Justice, Justice Nura Sagir refused to set aside the outcomes of the debate, saying all the recommendation given out by the anchor of the debate, Professor Shehu Salisu stand.
