However, she was later stoned to death and her corpse burnt by the irate mob within the school campus while accusing her of criticising the Holy Prophet Mohammed, S.A.W.
Below are some reactions from Nigerians:
Shehu Sani, “The murder of Deborah,a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education Sokoto is unconscionable and unreservedly & unambiguously condemned.Allegations against the deceased supposed to be investigated by Sokoto security agencies and follow due process of law.”
Atiku, “There can not be a justification for such gruesome murder. Deborah Yakubu was murdered, and all those behind her death must be brought to justice. My condolences to her family and friends.”
Bello Shagari, “Any mob action anywhere killing anyone for any reason is wrong, barbaric and un-Islamic. The sooner our ulama wakes up to educate people on sensitive issues like these the better.
“The mob action against the lady in Sokoto is most unfortunate and completely condemned.”
Mr Macaroni, “Nothing justifies the beating and stoning that eventually led to killing and burning Deborah. This is not how to practice the religion of peace.
And If there are people who genuinely believe that she deserved such, then something has gone terribly wrong with our humanity.”
Rinu Oduala, “They killed Deborah in cold blood, burnt her body and had the guts to make a video about it.
“They are very confident they will go scot free.
“@AWTambuwal the Murderers hiding under Islam are in Sokoto. They must be fished out.”
Reno Omokri, “Governor Tambuwal is contesting to be President. How he handles the burning to death of Deborah on allegations of blaspheming prophet Mohammed SAW will send a very clear message to all Nigerians about how he intends to handle our religious diversity if he’s elected!”
