President Muhammadu Buhari has strongly condemned the resort to self-help by the mob in Sokoto, which resulted in violence, destruction and killing of a second-year student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, Deborah Samuel.

Deborah, was accused of making a social media post that blasphemed the Holy Prophet Muhammad, a crime for which a mob, mostly made up of fellow students, killed her.

Reacting to the incident, Buhari said the killing of the young lady by fellow students was a matter of concern and demanded an impartial, extensive probe into all that happened before and during the incident.

The President noted that Muslims all over the world demand respect for the Holy Prophets, but where transgressions occur, as alleged to be the case in the killing, the law does not allow anyone to take matters into their hands.

Buhari, who extended the nation’s condolences to the family of the deceased student, also commended the immediate response to the incident by the state government and urged religious and community leaders to call citizens’ attention to the need to exercise the right to freedom of speech responsibly.
