A source confirmed that the deceased, named Deborah, was alleged to have used a blasphemous language. “She (the deceased) was having an argument with some of her schoolmates over their ongoing examination and when she was asked how she managed to pass her exams. “She was asked to withdraw the statement and apologise which she refused. “The school security intervened, and took her to their post but they were overpowered by the students after which she was killed in the process.”
The female student named Deborah, was assaulted and her remains burned for ‘saying unacceptable things about Prophet Muhammad’. It was alleged that Deborah made the alleged blasphemous comment at the school hostel during a disagreement with other students. She was asked to rescind her statement and apologise, but she refused.
Deborah was said to have been whisked to the school security outpost in the college for protection by some students. However, a mob overpowered the officials, killed the lady and burned her remains to ashes.
The incident was said to have taken place earlier this morning. The female student was beaten to death and subsequently burnt by fanatical Muslim students in the school for alleged blasphemy.
Nigerians on Thursday demanded justice for a yet-to-be-identified female student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State after she was mobbed and burnt by some students of the school for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
This is as the school’s management also directed the immediate closure of the school following the incident. Following today’s early morning students rampage in the college, the college management has resolved to close down the college indefinitely with immediate effect. Consequently, all students are hereby directed to vacate the college campus immediately (May 12, 2022),” the release read. Justice must prevail!
