Abdullahi said the report was baseless and unfounded.

The Comptroller, Correctional Service, Kano Command, Magaji Ahmed has dismissed media reports that the Kano singer, Yahaya Sharrif who was sentenced to death for blasphemy by a Sharia Court was denied access to lawyers and quality meal.

He said some lawyers who recently applied to see the condemned singer were granted access to him.

When asked about the condition of the singer, he said Sharrif was doing fine and well fed.

Abdullahi said over 145 persons sentenced to death are currently in the facility; many with pending appeal cases in court.

Singer was sentenced to death on August 10th, if not satisfied with the judgment he can appeal to the State High Court, the Court of Appeal and to the Supreme Court.
