Oby Ezekwesili Withdraws From NBA Event In Sokoto To Protest Killing Of Deborah Samuel.
Former minister, Oby Ezekwesili has withdrawn from Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) event which was scheduled to hold in Sokoto, where she was expected to speak as a special guest, to protest the killing of a christian school girl, Deborah Samuel by some Muslim students of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto over allegations of blasphemy.
Deborah was stoned to death and her corpse burnt by the irate muslim students.
She wrote on Twitter:
I have decided to withdraw my Speaking commitment to @NigBarAssoc for its event holding in Sokoto.
I was billed to speak from abroad via Zoom but even now will no longer do so.
NBA should seize this moment to reflect on how relevant its actions are in a troubled democracy.✍�
This would have been my session at the @NigBarAssoc conference in Sokoto:
I shall no longer participate. NBA owes citizens like #DeborahSamuel #EuniceOlawale #BridgetAgbaheme the judicial activism to enforce Justice.
