Sultanate council condemns killing of student in Sokoto

The Sultanate Council in Sokoto has condemned the murder of a Shehu Shagari College of Education student.

Deborah Samuel, a level-two student, was accused by the police of blaspheming the holy prophet Muhammad (SAW) in a social media post.

According to the police, the students forcefully evicted the victim from the security room where she was hidden by school administrators, murdered her, and set the building on fire.

Videos on social media show men stoning and flogging a motionless body draped in red attire.

Some footage also captured a raging fire as a man faced the camera, claiming that he killed and burnt her, and brandishing a matchbox.

“The Sultanate Council condemned the incident in its totality and has urged the security agencies to bring perpetrators of the unjustifiable incident to justice,” a statement signed by council secretary, Sa’idu Muhammadu Maccido, said.

“The Sultanate Council has urged all to remain calm and ensure peaceful co-existence among all people of the State and nation.”
