CWN Editor's Note: “States across Muslim-majority northern Nigeria use both secular law and Sharia law, which does not apply to non-Muslims,” the report notes. “Protesters had burnt down [the singer’s] family home and gathered outside the headquarters of the Islamic police, known as the Hisbah, demanding action against him.”
