This development follows the killing of Debrah Samuel, a female student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto‬ State.

On May 12, some students of the institution stoned and burnt her alive for alleged blasphemy and recorded the dastardly act.

The sad incident however generated several reactions from Nigerians, religious leaders and several groups in the country.

Subsequently, the police command in Sokoto announced the arrest of two suspects in connection with Deborah’s killing. It arraigned Bilyaminu Aliyu and Aminu Hukunci.

During the court proceedings, the suspects pleaded not guilty to the murder of the deceased.

Khalil Musa, the prosecuting inspector, told the court that the police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident. A team of 34 lawyers are leading the defence team.
