President Muhammadu Buhari has strongly condemned the killing of a female student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, in Wamako, Sokoto. The President said that the killing of the student identified as Deborah Samuel by fellow students is a matter of concern and demands an impartial and extensive investigation into everything that happened before and during the incident.
In his statement, the President said that nobody has the right to take the law into their hands in this country, and that violence has never been a solution to any problem.
In the report which was made by BBC News Pidgin, he instructed the Ministries of Information and Culture, Police Affairs and that of Communications and Digital Economy to work with mobile phone service providers and technology companies to help contain the spread of false information across social media.
The President sent condolences to the family of the dead student, and wished all those who were injured quick recovery.
Deborah Samuel, a level two student of the institution, was attacked and killed after she was accused of blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad in their class WhatsApp group.
Her death sparked outrage on social media, and many had called for the killers to be brought to book.
