Blasphemy: Buhari, CAN, NASFAT condemn killing of student

President Muhammadu Buhari and religious organisations have condemned the killing of a second-year student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, Deborah Samuel.   …

President Muhammadu Buhari and religious organisations have condemned the killing of a second-year student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, Deborah Samuel.   

The incident happened after an allegation that she had blasphemed Prophet Muhammad (SAW) on Thursday.  

While the chief missioner of the Nasrul-Lahi-l-Fatih (NASFAT), Imam Abdul-Azeez Onike said extra-judicial killing was alien to Islam, the general secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Joseph Bade Daramola called for severe punishment for the perpetrators.  

The president, in a statement issued Friday by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, noted that the news of the killing of the young woman by fellow students was a matter of concern, and demanded an impartial, extensive probe into all that happened before and during the incident.  

“No person has the right to take the law into his or her hands in this country. Violence has, and never will solve any problem,” the president said.  

Imam Onike said Prophet Muhammad (SAW), who the deceased allegedly blasphemed, was tolerant to a fault and frowned at extrajudicial killings.

Onike wondered what would be the reactions of some people if they saw someone ignorantly or deliberately urinating inside a mosque. He warned against a reprisal attack and unnecessary maligning of a particular tribe or religion since jungle justice is a condemnable act by all religions and sensible people.

The general secretary of the CAN said killing for any God in the name of blasphemy was ungodly and satanic.   

“As long as the state fails to bring these beasts and criminals amidst us to book, the society will continue to be their killing fields,” Daramola said.
