Jigawa State Police Command has arrested an islamic singer, Munkaila Ahmadu for killing his parents in Gagarawa Local Government Area of Jigawa State because they allegedly uttered blasphemous comments against Prophet Muhammad.

Mr Ahmadu, who is also a member of the Tijjaniyya Islamic sect, said his parents mocked, called him a mad person and opposed him being a praise singer for the Prophet.

NEWSTODAYNG garnered that the Police arrested Ahmadu, 37, after he killed his parents and injured two others on Thursday.

Ahmadu reportedly used a pestle to kill his father, Ahmad Muhammad, 70, who is the village head of the Zarada community in the Gagarawa council area, and his mother Ahmad Hauwa’u, 60.

In a recorded video in the police custody shared with NEWSTODAYNG, Ahmadu said he has no regret for what he did because he was commanded to do so.

“I killed them because they refuse to accept the truth concerning the prophet Muhammad (S.W.A). I killed them because they abused the prophet and their punishment is death, there is no repentance for any person who abused the Prophet.”

“I am a praise singer for the prophet, this year I intend to do a video for my song and God willing, I will do that, I will be free because God is with the righteous person, that is why I am not worrying over my action,”

“My parent doesn’t (don’t) like the prophet Muhammad because I adore him, they called me a mad person, I pleaded with my father to support my work (praise singing), and I told him that I don’t womanise, I am not a gambler, I don’t do drugs, and I don’t steal, but he refused to.”

“My mother used to go to neighbouring towns to blackmail me, telling people to reject me whenever I came to sing praises to the prophet because I am mad and I refused to work on the farm.”

“I am now in police custody because, by human thinking, I did a wrong thing but in the sight of God and the Prophet what I did is the right thing,” Ahmadu said.
