Ahmad denied this, writing: “Really? Show me where.”

And Nigerians presented a tweet he made in 2015 that reads: “I can’t pretend or keep silent. I support the death penalty for BLASPHEMY. That’s my belief and I do not and will never support #SaveKanoNine.”

Recall that on Thursday, 26th June 2015, a Sharia court in Kano sentenced nine people to death after finding them guilty of blasphemy. This birthed the hashtag #SaveKanoNine as people called for their death sentence to be overturned. However, Bashir Ahmad supported the death sentence.

X users are now reminding him of his ‘’belief” several years later.
