A female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, simply identified as Deborah, has been burnt to death for blasphemy by an irate mob believed to be fellow students on Thursday.

The female student was assaulted and her remains burned for ‘saying unacceptable things about Prophet Muhammad’.

It was alleged that Deborah made the alleged blasphemous comment at the school hostel during a disagreement with other students. She was asked to rescind her statement and apologise, but she refused.

Deborah was said to have been whisked to the school security outpost in the college for protection by some students. However, a mob overpowered the officials, killed the lady and burned her remains to ashes.
