Christian Female Student Burnt Alive In School By Muslim Mobs In Northern Nigeria For Allegedly Insulting Prophet Muhammad
A female student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State was burnt alive on Thursday over alleged blasphemy.
The student, who was accused of insulting Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W), was beaten to pulp.
In a video of the incident , young males hurled stones at her. Some also used sticks and different objects to hit her.
When the victim fell to the ground unconsciously, the attackers gathered tyres around her before she was set ablaze.
Surprisingly some off the Muslim youths took to twitter to commend the act and state how they can and will repeat such act if any one insults the prophet of Islam.
The Christian girl simply identified as Deborah was said to have made a blasphemous comment on a WhatsApp group.
“The group was created by her colleagues and it served as a platform to discuss academic issues,” a source said.
Someone said a religious comment was posted on the platform and while criticising it, Deborah made a blasphemous comment against the Prophet.
Another person said she made the comment while quarreling with a fellow student at the hostel.
“She was asked to apologize but refused and this heightened tension in the school. The college security personnel had to intervened by whisking her to their office but they were overwhelmed by students, who later set her ablaze,” the source said. The faces of these mobs show in the released video.
Briefing reporters at Government House, Sokoto, Commissioner of Information, Isa Bajini Galadanchi, said Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal had ordered that the school be shut and directed the ministry of Higher Education and relevant security agencies to investigate the matter.
“The Governor has called on the people of the state to remain calm and maintain peace as the government would take appropriate actions on the findings of the investigation,” Bajini said.
Such act is not strange to the northern part of the country, where many are openly sympathetic to the act of killing christians and other non-muslims, this plays out also as many even celebrated the open terrorists thinking those terrosrist are killing Christians, Unfortunately more muslims in Northern Nigeria has been killed and mainmed by those terrorists.
