Blasphemy: Protesters storm Sultan Palace, demand release of Deborah’s killers



Protesters on Saturday convened at the Sultan of Sokoto’s palace, demanding the immediate release of suspects arrested in connection with the horrific murder of Deborah Samuel, the 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education.
The demonstrators demanded the immediate release of “their brothers”, who stoned and burnt Ms Samuel to death over alleged blasphemy.
The protesters carried placards with inscriptions “Release(nd) our brothers,” “Muslims is not a terrorist,” in the presence of security officers
The protest was organised by Isiyaku Malami, a Muslim devout who believes the murder suspects were protecting the integrity of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
“Peace be upon you, we are calling on all Muslims in Sokoto State, for a protest because of our brothers that have been arrested in defending our religion -Islam. Those who are uplifting the honour of our prophet SAW,” reads the protest message shared by Mr Malami to Muslims in the state
