“Muslims don’t take insults against beloved prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in whatever form…The earlier our Christian brothers and sisters understand this, the better for all.
A Sokoto government official has threatened that more Christians in Nigeria will be murdered if they say things considered disrespectful to their revered Prophet Muhammad, following the gruesome killing of Deborah Samuel, a Christian female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Wamako.
Specifically, Anas Mohammad Sani, who, according to his Facebook bio, is a personal assistant to the Sokoto finance commissioner, had asserted that Ms Samuel was brutally murdered because she was reckless with her tongue.
A pro-President Muhammadu Buhari regime’s social media contractor, Zara Oyinye, had taken to her Facebook page to comment on the action of the Sokoto mob who killed the Christian student.
Reacting to Ms Oyinye’s post, Mr Sani, popularly known as Uncle Anas Dakura on Facebook, insisted Muslim mob justifiably murdered Ms Samuel.
He warned, “Muslims don’t take insults against beloved prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in whatever form.”
Justifying the gruesome murder of the female Christian student, Mr Sani said, “The earlier our Christian brothers and sisters understand this, the better for all of us. May the recklessness of our tongues never drive us to (an) early grave.”
Ms Samuel, a 200 level Home-Economics student accused of blasphemy, had complained bitterly over the influx of religious broadcast messages shared to her department’s WhatsApp page.
