“Every citizen has a right to life! No person or group of persons have the right to take the life of another citizen!!! You cannot kill another in the name of defending your religion. Do we all start killing ourselves in the name of religion?? It is inhumane and it must End!!!
“According to multiple reports, Deborah a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, accused of Blasphemy was killed and burnt. This is what happens when there are no consequences for actions in the society. The government must wake up from their slumber!!
“Justice must be served!!! And it must be swiftly done!! If not, we would be enabling a society wherein religious extremists take law into their hand, kill and destroy. These acts should be highly condemned lest we add more tension and Chaos to a society already on the edge!!!
“Governor@AWTambuwal this is happening in your state!!! Issues like this should be swiftly addressed. Nigerians already have it hard!! Killing and burning of people should not be added to the list!!!”
