Tambuwal meets Sokoto Muslim leaders over Deborah Samuel’s murder

Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto, on Friday, met with Muslim leaders in the state over the killing of Deborah Samuel, a female student at the Shehu Shagari College of Education.

The meeting was convened to discuss how to ensure the student’s murder does not elicit reprisals.

Tambuwal, who is a PDP presidential aspirant, canceled his visits to delegates to consult religious leaders to ensure security of lives and property of all residents of Sokoto.

The student was attacked by a mob over remarks considered to be an insult to Prophet Muhammad.

There has been a flurry of condemnation by Muslim leaders and groups, notably Muhammadu Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto, over the incident.

The Sokoto police command had earlier announced the arrest of two suspects in connection with the killing which sparked nationwide outrage.
