Blasphemy: Killers of Deborah, Sokoto undergraduate must be brought to justice – Anyim


ABUJA – Former President of the Senate and presidential aspirant, Anyim Pius Anyim, has condemned in the strongest terms, the gruesome killing of Miss Deborah Yakubu in Sokoto State on Thursday, 13th of May, 2022.
Late Miss Deborah, a 200 level student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, in Sokoto State was stonned and burnt to death by an angry crowd of fellow students for allegedly making a social media post that her attackers claimed blasphemed Prophet Mohammed.
In a statement he personally signed and made available to Sundiata Post, Senator Anyim decried the killing of the Miss Deborah Yakubu as cruel, illegal, callous and inhuman.
Anyim insisted that “there is no place in a modern democracy such as Nigeria for jungle justice and killing of human beings illegally. Miss Deborah Yakubu deserved to have been put through the full process of the law which has adequate punishment for all offences including the one she was accused of. We cannot afford now to add religious intolerance to the plethora of problems bedevilling our country.
“I therefore urged security agencies to carry out thorough investigation into this ugly incident with a view to bringing those responsible for the unlawful murder of a promising Nigerian to justice as soon as possible.
“I condole with the immediate family and friends of late Miss Deborah Yakubu over this painful death and irreplaceable loss.
“I pray that God Almighty, in His infinite mercy, grants the soul of Miss Deborah Yakubu a peaceful repose and to those she left behind, the strength and courage to bear the loss”, Anyim concluded.
