Police in Bauchi State are said to have shot two people in an attempt to prevent mayhem over another blasphemy case.
According to reports received by Anaedoonline.ng on Saturday morning, a Christian woman allegedly shared a blasphemous video on a WhatsApp app mostly used by Muslim fundamentalists.
Residents of the state’s Warji Local Government Area were allegedly ready to take the law into their own hands in response to the development.
According to Leadership, the woman in issue shared the allegedly blasphemous video with a WhatsApp group of her Muslim coworkers.
Mrs Roda Jatau, the accused’s name, is said to be employed by the Bauchi State Primary Health Care.
Narrating the incident to the media platform, a supposed colleague with Jatau said: “The lady is originally from Gombe but married in Warji LGA.
“She posted a video of someone who renounced Islam; in the video, the person could be heard insulting the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad Peace be Upon Him.
“Within a blink of an eye, the video started circulating on social media and nerves were high”, the source told Leadership.
However, police were said to have moved quickly, shooting two persons who attempted to set fire to an ECWA church in Warji town.
Deborah Samuel, a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State, was slain a few days ago for supposed blasphemy, according to Anaedoonline.ng.
Her Muslim classmates attacked and burned her to death because they thought her WhatsApp voice note in a school group conversation insulted Prophet Muhammad.
Because of some of the reactions to Deborah Samuel’s tragedy, it appears that even political office holders in the country have lost faith.
