The mood in Sokoto State is heated at the moment, with citizens planning a huge demonstration in response to the arrest of the accused murders of Deborah Samuel.
Some Muslim zealots brutally tortured and burned to death a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education for allegedly disrespecting Islam’s prophet Muhammad, according to Anaedoonline.ng.
The young girl, who is thought to be in her second year at the university, was assaulted after she criticised religious messages made by her Muslim classmates in a WhatsApp group for discussing academic information.
The Muslim faithful labeled her conduct blasphemous and proceeded to her hostel to beat her to a pulp before lighting her fire.
Religious leaders, government officials, and the general population have all expressed interest in the initiative.
Two individuals were apprehended and put into jail as a result of the incident, according to the State Police Command.
According to Sanusi Abubakar, a spokesman for the Sokoto police, the crowd overwhelmed campus security before murdering the female student and lighting her body on fire.
While significant players strive to keep the situation from worsening, a flyer received by a news agency on Saturday, written in Hausa, called for Muslims to come out in large numbers to protest the arrest of Deborah’s accused killers.
The leaflet carries a schedule of the protest stating clearly their aim.
The writeup scripted in the Hausa language reads thus in English: “We’re inviting Muslims in Sokoto to come and help them rescue our brothers that were arrested because they were defending Islam and uplifting prophet Muhammad S.A.W.
“Gawon Mama Roundabout is where they’ll meet; Time: 9 am. For more details call those numbers,” the leaflet added.
