Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation, said any leader who remains silent and refuses to openly denounce the gruesome murder of a female Sokoto student accused of blasphemy is a coward.
Deborah Samuel, a student at the Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, was brutally murdered on Thursday, May 12.
Deborah was stoned, beaten, and burned to death by an enraged mob after she allegedly blasphemed Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) in a voice message sent to her class group chat.
FFK declared on his Instagram page that any politician who remains mute and does not publicly condemn the heinous murder is a coward.
According to him,
“Any so-called leader that remains silent and refuses to publicly condemn the murd*r of Deborah is a C*WARD. I don’t care who or what you are: if you cannot bring yourself to condemn this cold-blo*ded and horrific murd*r then you are nothing but a C*WARD and I have contempt for you.”
In the meantime, authorities reported on Thursday that at least two people have been arrested in connection with the death of a female student at Shehu Shagari College of Education.
According to a statement signed by Sanusi Abubakar, the police spokesperson in Sokoto, the culprits in the viral video on Twitter have been identified and will be apprehended soon.
The school has been closed, and more police officers have been dispatched to the area, according to Mr. Abubakar.
