A female student in Nigeria has been beaten and set ablaze by her fellow students at the college of education in Sokoto. One of the predominantly Muslim regions in northern Nigeria.
The students who are Muslims claimed that Deborah Samuel abused prophet Muhammed in her message to a WhatsApp group.
In a video that has widely been circulated on social media, while Deborah was being killed, the Muslim students could be heard shouting “Allah hu Akbar,” a popular chant by Muslims whenever they are carrying out terrorist activities.
Most Nigerians have taken to social media to condemn the killing and express their condolences to the victim’s family.
Islam would always be viewed as a terrorist religion unless the Islamic leaders do something to stop the radicalism, extremism, and terrorist activities perpetrated by the Islamic radicals.
Honor killings are normally carried out in strict Muslim countries such as Pakistan. According to Akra Chan, a YouTube user: “In Pakistan, A child saw his neighbour doing blasphemy in his dream and he told the villagers about it, then the villagers killed the man because he did blasphemy in someone’s dream.”
In an interview, a Nigerian Muslim professor, Ishaq Akintola described the incident as “saddening and unfortunate.”
While the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has strongly condemned Deborah’s killing, President Buhari is still silent on the issue. Osinbajo described the Deborah’s killing over an allegation of blasphemy as deeply distressing and shocking.
Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has condemned the conspiratory silence for over 24 hours of President Muhammadu Buhari over the brutal hacking to death of Deborah.
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who is aspiring to be the next Nigerian president has come under fire for posting and later removing a tweet condemning the murder of Deborah Samuel.
