Deborah Samuel: Conduct impartial, extensive investigation, Islamic society tells Sokoto, FG
By Afeez Shola
As Nigerians have continued to condemn the murder of Deborah Samuel over blasphemy in Sokoto State, an Islamic society, Daaru-r- Rahmat (DARMAT) has called on the state and federal government to commence an impartial investigation and extensive probe into the incident so as to bring the perpetrators to book.
The Ameer/ Chief Imaam of the society, Ustaadh Misibaudeen Olawale made the call in Osogbo, Osun State capital in a statement issued over the incident.
He said that, the setting up of the probe panel would go a long way to know what happened before and during the incident.
He noted that, “Muslims all over the world demand respect for the Holy Prophets, including Isah (Alaihis-salaam, Jesus Christ) and Muhammad (SAW) but where transgressions occur, as alleged to be the case in this instance, the law does not allow anyone to take matters into their hands.
“Moreover, religious leaders preach that it is not for the believer to judge the actions of another person.
“The constituted authority must be allowed to deal with such matters when they arise.
“No person has the right to take the law into his or her own hands in this country. Violence has and never will solve any problem”.
He urged. the students not to take law into their hands as he prayed for the peace and progress in Nigeria.
Olawale who used the Qur’an injuction to appeal for peace said:
“And the servants of the Beneficent Allah are they who walk on the earth in humbleness, and when the ignorant address them, they say: Peace (Q25: 63)”
Olawale however expressed condolences to the family of the deceased student and called for tampered comments among the general population while investigation is ongoing to find out the remote and immediate causes of the incident.
