Video of that female student murdered in Sokoto by a mob for “religious reasons” is proof that we have a long way to go in this country.
Her murderers made a video about it, knowing that nothing will happen to them. They’d even be praised in certain quarters.
The year is 2022

The sokoto killing is one of the reasons why we cannot be one Nigeria, our ideologies are different
The youth used by Boko Haram to partake in the conflict are jobless, without skills, or trades, and are easily susceptible to radicalisation.
Most of them are religious fanatics.

Some of the faces of the criminal religious fanatics and animals who stoned and burnt a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto today was visible. I hope arrests are made and they get prosecuted.

And if you support the killing of that female student in Sokoto in the name of blasphemy, you’re not different from Boko Haram
You all are killers and criminals

Somebody said “Jesus helped her pass exams”, Islamic zealots allegedly burnt her in Sokoto for blasphemy. Where did we throw our conscience, Nigerians?

The mastermind of the murder of a citizen at ATBU for blasphemy is today a Minister of the Federal Republic, so why would dogs not murder a female citizen in Sokoto?

Innalillahi wa inna ilayhi rajiun
What manner of barbarism just happened in Sokoto?
Who the hell are you to take someone’s life?
The Prophet (SAW) went to visit a man that usually insult & pour debris on him when the man was ill
Nigeria keeps producing serial killers!

A female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto has been reportedly beaten and burnt to death for ‘religious blasphemy.’ Video is gory and horrible.
You hear news like this, and remember that this country’s issues are bigger than our economic woes.

All the boys whose faces appeared in that tragic trending video from Sokoto state will have elevated status in their society as a result, they will be tagged heroes and tipped for greatness. In a few years, they will occupy powerful seats. That’s the way it works in the North. 💔
