On Thursday, May 12, some irate students of the Shehu Shagari College of Education mobbed, killed and burnt a colleague, Deborah Samuel, over alleged blasphemy of the Prophet Mohammed. While many Nigerians have condemned the act which has been described as barbaric, others have blamed the late young girl for making ‘ungodly’ remarks about the prophet. However, in swift action, the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III condemned in strong words, the attack, killing and burning of Samuel.

In a statement released by the Sultanate Council Sokoto, Sa’idu Maccido, the secretary to the council said the Palace has learnt with dismay the unfortunate incident which took place at the institution. Maccido said that the Sultanate Council condemn the incident in its totality and urged the security agencies to bring perpetrators of the unjustifiable incident to justice. The statement added that the Sultanate Council urges residents in Sokoto to remain calm and ensure peaceful co-existence among the people of the state and the nation.
