Reno Omokri, Former Spokesperson to Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on New Media has called on Sokoto State Government to ensure that the people who gruesomely murdered and set ablaze a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto on Thursday morning over alleged blasphemous statement against Prophet Mohammed must be punished.
Nigeria social and mainstream media spaces have been awashed with videos of group of students gruesomely Killing their own colleague simply because she attributed the success recorded on her academic pursuit to Jesus Christ.
Reno Omokri said when Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai made blasphemous statement against Jesus Christ, Christians did not kill him but allowed God Almighty to judge him.
Reno Omokri said:
The gruesome killing of the female student, whose name I understand to be Deborah, in Sokoto on allegations of blaspheming prophet Mohammed SAW must be investigated and the culprits should be severely punished.
Nasir El-Rufai insulted Christ, but Christians did not kill him! Nasir El-Rufai falsely accused Christians of being behind Boko Haram, but the Body of Christ did not set him ablaze. We were rather tolerant, leaving him to God. So, why must Deborah be so barbarically murdered?
Only yesterday, a Catholic priests was murdered in the den of terrorists who had abducted him. Catholics, to their credit, did not blame those who share the religion of those who killed him. So, why could they not have charged Deborah if at all the allegations of blasphemy were true?
On July 9, 2016, Evangelist Eunice Elisha was killed for preaching Christ in Kubwa, FCT. No one was punished. That same year, Bridget Agbahime was beheaded in Kano for blasphemy, no one was punished. The murder of Deborah must not go the same way.
Governor Aminu Tambuwal is contesting to be President of Nigeria. How he handles the gruesome 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 diversity of religion and region!
