Meriam Ibrahim's brother-in-law: Flogging will 'take her skin off'
Gabriel Wani speaks about the situation with his sister-in-law, Meriam Yahya Ibrahim Ishag, at Believers Christian Outreach Church in Manchester recently. (Thomas Roy/Union Leader)
Gabriel Wani, brother of Daniel Wani, explained what 100 lashes mean. A strong man with a whip doles out the punishment. Male prisoners are stripped before the whipping. Female prisoners start off with clothing, but the brutal lash soon tears them apart, leaving the woman bare-backed as the whip “takes skin” off. After a hundred lashes some die, while others hover “in bad condition” until they are executed.
