WHAT?! How A Thief In Nigeria Got Sentenced To Amputation For Stealing A Cow [VIDEO]
Sept. 22, 2020
In 2000, a man who was convicted under Islamic law of steeling cows had his right hand amputated in northern Nigeria.
The middle-aged Buba Bello Janged was convicted by a sharia court in Talata-Mafara village, the Zamfara state government said in a statement. He was given 30 days to appeal.
When no appeal was lodged, the sentence was carried out on days after. State authorities gave no further details. Watch the video below:
For years, Islamic courts have settled civil cases, such as divorces and inheritances, among Muslims. But the new sharia created courts with the power to try criminal cases involving Muslims and mete out punishments.
Sharia supporters assured non-Muslims that they will not be tried under Islamic law, which prohibits such things as drinking alcohol and also calls for separate schools and public transportation for men and women.
But such assurances have meant little to Christians, who fear becoming marginalized or discriminated against.
Their fears are fed by the country's newspapers in the largely Christian south, which have filled pages with dire warnings of the punishments Christians will face.
Plans to introduce sharia in northern Kaduna state in 2000 sparked days of bloody clashes between Christians and Muslims in several towns.
More than 2,000 people were killed in the violence, some officials say. That fighting sparked off revenge attacks in the southeast, where hundreds more were killed.
Trying to end the violence, Obasanjo's government convinced northern leaders to back away from attempts to introduce sharia. The informal agreement said states that already had sharia would stop enforcing it, while states seeking to put it into effect would hold off for now.
But the governor of Zamfara subsee could not be compelled to halt sharia.
Twelve out of Nigeria's thirty-six states have Islam as the dominant religion. In 1999, those states chose to have Sharia courts as well as Customary courts.
As of 2012, the following 12 states have instituted Sharia: Zamfara, Kano, Sokoto, Katsina, Bauchi, Borno, Jigawa, Kebbi, Yobe, Kaduna, Niger and Gombe State.
