Curfew declared in Sokoto as Protesters Demand Release of Deborah’s ‘killers’

Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state has imposed a 24-hour curfew in the state, following protests held in parts of state, demanding the release of suspects arrested over the killing of Deborah Samuel, a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education.

Deborah was killed by a mob over alleged blasphemy on Thursday.

Her killing had sparked outrage and condemnation across the country, with Nigerians asking the government to fish out the perpetrators of the crime.

Subsequently, the police command in Sokoto announced the arrest of two suspects in connection with the killing.

But on Saturday morning, some Muslim youths in Sokoto took to the streets to protest against the arrest of the suspects.

Tambuwal had met with Muslim leaders in the state to discuss how to ensure the student’s murder does not elicit violent reprisals.
