Tension As Sokoto Residents Plan Mass Protest Over Arrest Of Deborah Samuel Killers

The atmosphere in Sokoto State is currently tense as residents have scheduled time to embark on a mass protest over the arrest of the suspected killers of Deborah Samuel.

We had reported earlier that the female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education was horribly beaten and burnt to death by some Muslim fanatics for allegedly insulting Islam’s prophet Muhammad.

The young lady said to be in her 200 level at the institution was attacked after she condemned religious posts by her Muslim coursemates in a WhatsApp group meant for sharing academic materials.

Her actions were declared blasphemy by the Muslim faithful who went to her hostel to beat her to a pulp before setting her ablaze.

The development has attracted the attention of religious leaders, government officials and the general public.

In response to the incident, the State Police Command said two suspects had been arrested and taken into custody.

According to the Sokoto police spokesman, Sanusi Abubakar, the mob overpowered campus security before killing the female student and setting her remains on fire.

However, while major stakeholders are trying to ensure the situation does not erupt further damage, a leaflet obtained by SaharaReporters on Saturday, written in Hausa, invited Muslims to come out en mass to protest against the arrest of the suspected killers of Deborah.

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.
