Islamic cleric, Ibrahim Maqari, Imam of Abuja National Mosque.

The Imam of Abuja national mosque, Ibrahim Maqari, has justified the stoning and roasting of Deborah Samuel, a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State, by Islamic fanatics.

Ms Deborah was killed on Thursday at the school premises after she allegedly blasphemed Prophet Mohammad reverenced by Muslims.

Trouble began after the 200 level Home-Economics student lamented bitterly at the influx of religious contents in her department’s WhatsApp group meant for academic purposes. She also rebuked attacks from other of her colleagues who attacked her for the alleged disparaging remarks.

The school authorities reportedly summoned and detained her at the security axis of the institution before irate fundamentalist arrived, dragged her out, stoned and set her remains ablaze.

Justifying the inhumane treatment meted out to the deceased, Mr Maqari, in a statement Friday morning, said her attackers should not be blamed because the deceased crossed Islamic redline.

“It should be known to everyone that we the Muslims have some red lines beyond which MUST NOT be crossed,” the cleric said. “The dignity of the Prophet (PBUH) is at the forefront of the red lines. If our grievances are not properly addressed, then we should not be criticized for addressing them ourselves.”

6 Remarks

  1. HEAVEN SHALL REWARD YOU, AND BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU’VE JUST SAID YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WILL BE BURND BY FIRE 🔥 IN ALL WAYS BY ACCIDENT OR BY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ALSO IN ALL WAYS.

  2. Does this man look like a Nigerian? He must be one of the blood thirsty Fulanis masquerading as an Imam.

  3. This is an Imam openly supporting the killing of an innocent girl who only said that, the WhatsApp group should be dedicated to student affairs and not religious matters. And the students of the Collegegot iraged and killed her. And here you are, an Imam supporting the killing of this girl. Killings, am afraid will not stop in the North any more. Believe you me.

  4. If there exist a religion that justifies jungle justice in the name of a RED LINE humanity is in a big mess…

  5. I doubt if this so called Imam is really a Muslim member, whatever you might say,you are indeed a blood sucker,the eater of the flesh of the innocent human beings,. This is to show and tell us that we the Christians are not needed in this zoo called”Nigeria. Chaii!!
