Aragbiji fumes over Deborah’s killing

Amidst widespread condemnation of the killing of a student of Sehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, Miss Deborah Samuel, the Aragbiji of Iragbiji, Oba Abdur-Rasheed Ayotunde Olabomi, who is a former secretary of Osun State Muslim Community, has added his voice to the discourse, declaring the May 12, 2022 incident as unislamic and inhuman.

In a statement by his Press Officer II, Abdulkareem Mubarak, Oba Olabomi also described as worrisome the mayhem unleashed on Sokoto city by the youths who protested the arrest of two suspects connected with the crime.

He said, “Even as many Nigerians including Islamic Scholars and groups condemn the dastardly act of jungle justice, it is unfortunate that some mindless bigots have the temerity to defend the criminal act.

The Aragbiji called on law enforcement agencies “to fish out other collaborators and bring all of them to justice. He then appealed to Nigerian youths to shun all acts of criminality under the guise of religion. All the perpetrators of Deborah’s murder must be made to face the law of the land.”

He also said: “Killing of fellow human being unlawfully has no place in Islam. This issue must be treated as a very heinous criminal act and the law of the land must take its cause”.

Oba Olabomi urged all to remain calm and ensure peaceful co-existence among all people of the state and the nation in general.
