Nigerians have berated Aisha Yesufu over comments on Deborah Samuel’s murder.
Naijacrawl had reported earlier that a 200-level student of Home Economics at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State, northern Nigeria, had been lynched by fellow students over alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad on Thursday, May 12, 2022.
This online news platform understands that the Christian student, identified as Deborah Samuel, allegedly shared the offensive message in a school WhatsApp group. It was learned that the blasphemous message drew the ire of the students, who overpowered school security, beat her to death, and set her body on fire.
Reacting to the ugly incident in Sokoto State, Aisha Yesufu, a Nigerian activist and businesswoman who co-founded the #BringBackOurGirls movement, took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to compare those who lynched the Christian girl to people “that lynch thieves”.
Aisha wrote: “If you are one of those lynch thieves, just take this moment to know that you and those Sokoto students who killed their fellow students are the same." I hope you use this as a mirror to your despicable acts. No one has the right in any way whatsoever to kill another. No one! ”
Apparently displeased with her comments, Nigerians took to Twitter to lambaste the #ENDSARS activist, calling on her to shut up.
