Abuja Imam Justifies Killing Of Deborah Samuel, Says She Crossed 'Islamic Red Lines'

KanyiDaily had reported how Deborah was beaten and burnt to death by her Muslim colleagues over alleged blasphemous remarks considered to be an insult to Prophet Mohammed.

A source said trouble started on Thursday morning when the late Christian student was asked by her colleagues how she managed to pass her exams.

Deborah was said to have attributed her academic excellence to Jesus and this angered her colleagues who asked her to withdraw her statement — to which she refused.

The source said the mob attacked her and then set her body ablaze after overpowering the school security personnel who tried to intervene in the matter.

gory image and video clip of the incident sparked outrage on social media with many Nigerians calling on authorities to immediately bring the killers to book.

Reacting to the outrage on Friday, Ibrahim Maqari blamed the late student for crossing the red lines of Islamic faith which resulted in her killing by a rampaging mob of Muslim fanatics.

The Abuja Imam warned that grave consequences awaited persons who crossed the religion’s red lines, especially as regards the dignity of Prophet Muhammad, noting that such conduct will not be tolerated.

“It should be known to everyone that we the Muslims have some red lines beyond which MUST NOT be crossed. The dignity of the Prophet (PBUH) is at the forefront of the red lines.

“If our grievances are not properly addressed, then you should not be criticized for addressing them ourselves,” Maqari tweeted.
