Deborah Samuel: Ex-IGP’s Son Defends Death Punishment For Blasphemers



The son of a former Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, Jamil Abubakar on Friday night defended the call for death as punishment for blasphemers.

According to Jamil, who is the President of JMD Foundation, a non-profit organisation, the punishment for blasphemy is death.

Jamil stated this amid the killing of Deborah Samuel, a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto killed for alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad (SAW)

The son-in-law of Africa’s wealthiest man, Aliko Dangote stated that all religions preach against blasphemy and warned people to respect people’s religion.

Jamil in a post on his Twitter account wrote, “In Islam, we respect the Injil, Taura, Zabur, we were never taught to disrespect any of the books, or any of the prophets From Adam to Muhammad SAW and the Quran.

“The punishment for blasphemy is death! in most religions including Christianity. Respect people’s religion. It’s simple!”

In a related development, a coursemate of the deceased has revealed how Deborah was killed and her last words before her death.

The coursemate identified as Rakia said, Deborah asked the people who killed her, ‘what do you hope to achieve with this?’

Rakia while narrating the incident said Deborah was flogged, killed, and burnt and it was the most horrible thing she has ever witnessed.
