- 120 FOREIGNERS VOLUNTEER TO SERVE 10-YEAR JAIL SENTENCE OF 13YEAR OLD UMAR IN KANO
Piotr Cywinski, director of Auschwitz Memorial in Poland has written a letter addressed to President Buhari over the 10-year jail sentence handed to 13-year-old Umar Farouq over blasphemy in Kano.
Recall LIB reported that the teenager was handed the jail sentence for “using disparaging language on Allah” during a disagreement with his friend.
However Cywinski, a foreign activist, in the letter dated September 25 sought for pardon for Farouq, and further stated that he and 119 volunteers would serve a month in a Nigerian prison on Farouq’s behalf if President Buhari is unable to secure the pardon.
