An interfaith, non-profit international organisation, ‘Shallow Waters,’ has added its voice to the condemnation of the actions leading to the death of Deborah Samuel, a female student of a tertiary institution in Sokoto state.
Deborah Samuel Yakubu was accused by Islamic students of blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed of the Islamic faith.
The President of the group, Dr. Smiles Abusomwan, speaking through the International Coordinator, Shallow Waters International Society of Female Professionals, Sandra Ken-Airhunde described the act as barbaric, outrageous, brutal and unlawful.
According to her, “Aggrieved students should have gone through the lawful process of reporting Deborah to the security agencies.
“Mob killing is archaic; belongs to the stone age. Nobody has the right to take laws into his hands. As good citizens of a country, we should be guided by the law of the land,” she added.
She called on security agencies, relevant stakeholders and other concerned citizens to launch into action with a view to ensuring that perpetrators of the dastardly act are brought to book.
It will be recalled that a christian female student was stoned to death and set ablaze by some muslim students on Thursday May 12, 2022 at the Shehu Shagari College of Education Sokoto, Sokoto State, Nigeria over allegations of blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed.
It was gathered that until her death, Deborah Samuel Yakubu, from Niger State, was one of the leaders of Fellowship of Christian Students (FCS) of the College.
She was also a member of ECWA Church in Niger State.
