Deborah Samuel: Azman Airline Distance Itself From Dangote’s Son-In-Law Abubakar



Azman Air has distanced itself from the son of a former Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, Jamil Abubakar days after he supported the death penalty for blasphemy.

The son-in-law of Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote had expressed his view while reacting to the killing of Deborah Samuel.

Deborah, a 200-level student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, was beaten and set ablaze by her Muslim colleagues for allegedly insulting Islam’s Prophet Mohammed.

Abubakar in his reaction said the punishment met for blasphemers is death and called on people to respect the religion of others.

The pilot 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!”

Azman Air in a statement released on Sunday disclosed that Abubakar had seized to be its staff since 21th of December 2019.

The statement reads, “UPDATE: It is important for the General Public to note that Capt Jamil Abubakar operated his last flight with @AzmanAir on 21st Dec. 2019 and resigned his appointment FORMALLY afterwards Kindly desist from contrary reports fueling a negative impression about this.”
