Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has reacted to the murder of Deborah Samuel, the 200-level student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, who was beaten and burnt to death by her classmates for allegedly insulting Prophet Mohammed. Speaking to newsmen after attending a function on Friday, May 13, Osinbajo described the incident as a ”deeply distressing and very disturbing” ”The President has reacted to this, a statement which was issued earlier condemning the action.I must say that the killing of Deborah Samuel is a deeply distressing thing, very disturbing – such an atrocious killing of the young lady by a mob who took the law into their own hands. It is very unfortunate.The swift reaction of the Sokoto State Government and also the Sultan of Sokoto clearly demonstrated the outrage of millions of Nigerians and also demonstrated the desire of everyone to ensure that the perpetrators are quickly apprehended and prosecuted.As the President said, there’s really no excuse for anyone to take the law into their own hands no matter the provocation, there are set processes for ensuring that we are able to redress whatever wrongs that are done against us.We must express our condolence to the family of the young lady Deborah Samuel. I can’t imagine how her parents, siblings, and members of her family feel, not just about her death, but the very horrendous nature of its occurrence. It is very sad indeed, and I extend our sincere condolences to them. I ask that the Almighty will comfort them at this time. The post There is no excuse for anyone to take the laws into their own hands – Osinbajo reacts to gruesome murder of Sokoto student, Deborah Samuel appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
