Aisha Yesufu had compared those who lynched the girl to people “that lynch thieves”.
According to Yesufu, she stated in a tweet that ” “If you are one of those that lynch thieves just take this moment to know that you and those sokoto students who killed their fellow student are the same. Hope you use this as a mirror in to your despicable acts. No one has the right in anyway whatsoever to kill another. No one!”
If you are one of those that lynch thieves just take this moment to know that you and those sokoto students who killed their fellow student are the same. Hope you use this as a mirror into your despicable acts. No one has the right in anyway whatsoever to kill another. No one!
What type of hypocritical analogy is this? Disregarding the fact that no one has the right to kill outside the law, how does it make sense to compare robbery to blasphemy? One robs or harm people, the other says something about a long gone figure you hold dear. Na wa o
So are you saying In other words the people who lynch a murderous criminal and those lynch an innocent student are cut from the same cloth. they are deserving or the same punishment and they both no matter the reason, are not justified to react in that way?
Newsbreak.ng had reported earlier that a 200 Level student of Home Economics at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State, northern Nigeria, had been lynched by fellow students over alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad on Thursday, May 12, 2022.
The audio heard here revealed that Deborah Yakubu warned her classmates against posting religious things on a class WhatsApp group chat.
She had said before her death; “Holy ghost fire, nothing would happen to me, is it by force you guys would always be sending this religious stuff in the group, the group wasn’t created for that, but rather as a notice for when there’s a test, assignment, exams, etc, not these nonsense Religious posts.”
In a swift action, the school was later shut down by the management to avoid escalation of the situation.
“Following today’s early morning Students rampage in the College, the College Management has resolved to close down the College indefinitely with immediate effect.
“Consequently, all students are hereby directed to vacate the College campus immediately,” the school said in a statement.
