Some youths in Sokoto state have stoned and burnt a female student to death for what they believed is blasphemy against the Islamic Prophet Muhammed.
The lady, identified simply as Deborah, was a student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto state.
According to a viral video , Deborah, who was in a pink dress, was lying unconscious on the floor while she was being mobbed.
After a while, the youths chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ set her on fire using motor tyres.
One of the persons in the video confirmed he was part of those who mobbed and burnt her. He noted he struck the match that led to the fire.
“I am the one who killed her; I burnt her,” he said in Hausa language while displaying a box of matches in his hand.
The incident appeared to have happened at the security post not very far from the school gate.
