BLASPHEMY, MURDER WRONG, UNACCEPTABLE BY ANY FORM… SHEHU SANI
Corroborating, a Governorship aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Shehu Sani has reacted to the extra-judicial killing of Deborah over alleged blasphemy.
Sani who regretted the heinous act wrote:
“Blasphemy is wrong, unacceptable, and condemnable in any form because it touches on the sensibilities and sensitivities of the faithful; And murder is wrong and unacceptable in any form as there are legal steps to address such. The Sultan’s appeal for peace should be heeded. Juma’at Mubarak.
“Evil is evil no matter who perpetrated it or where it is done or what is being done. Jungle justice and other forms of taking laws into one’s hands should be condemned outrightly. Both North and South are guilty of this offense and we should all stand tall to condemn and warn against this rampant evil regardless of the purpose it is being done be it religious or otherwise.
“We had several cases where OPC burned live alleged armed robbers in South West, people of this same region on several occasions had burned live alleged kidnappers and ritualists. If we go to the North, we see several examples of cases like this though theirs used to have a religious inclination and this explained why their cases used to get public attention more compared to the southern region.
“All in all, taking laws into one’s hands is against Shari’a and humanity. Let’s come together to fight this evil act and do away from making this issue look tribalistic”, Senator Sani said.
However, a presidential aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who earlier condemned the incident in a post on his Twitter and Facebook handles, has pulled down the content.
Atiku’s decision was consequent on reactions incited by his post as the former Vice President is trending on number one on Twitter.
Famous Reporters gathered that Atiku’s presidential ambition was threatening by some Muslim fanatics upon citing his post as it regards the extra-judicial killing of Miss Deborah.
Meanwhile, as at the time of filing this report, neither Atiku nor President Mohammadu Buhari has reacted to the act of injustice against Deborah.
