135

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has reacted to the gruesome killing of a second-year student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Deborah Samuel, over an allegation of blasphemy describing it as deeply distressing.

Osinbajo made this known while speaking with journalists on Friday at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, shortly after his arrival from Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

The vice president noted that President Muhammadu Buhari and the Sultan of Sokoto had condemned the incident.

“Let me say that, first, the president has reacted to this, in a statement which was issued earlier condemning the action.

“I must say that it’s 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; I think it’s very unfortunate.

The swift reaction of the Sokoto State Government and also the Sultan of Sokoto is highly commendable.”

“I think that their swift reaction to the situation clearly demonstrates the outrage of millions of Nigerians and also the desire of everyone to ensure that the perpetrators are quickly apprehended and prosecuted.”

The Presidential aspirant condoled with the family of the deceased and prayed God to comfort those she left behind while stating clearly that there is no justification for extra-judicial killing as there are legal channels of addressing any misdeed.

“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.
