Popular sociopolitical activist, Aisha Yesufu, has told protesters attacking and destroying churches in Sokoto State that they are actually the ones disrespecting Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.).
Some Muslim youths in Sokoto State, this morning May 14, filed out in their numbers to demand the release of the two suspects arrested by the police in connection with the murder of Deborah Samuel a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, killed on Thursday, May 12, over claims that she insulted Prophet Mohammed.
Armed with placards, the protesting youths were seen shouting “Allahu Akbar” translated in English as ‘God is great’.
The protest started at the roundabout of Zabira mall and they marched through Gao-nama onwards flyover within the state metropolis
They demanded the immediate release of those arrested, while the protest lasted.
Reacting to the development, Aisha Yesufu tweeted, “Attacks on churches? Where are the violent and bloodthirsty clerics? Is attack on religious houses not forbidden by Islam?
“Did the Prophet not stop and warn against attacking churches and synagogues? Who is disrespecting the Prophet more?”
Governor Aminu Tambuwal on Saturday imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state metropolis for fear of bloody protests.
Security operatives were stationed in strategic places to forestall any breakdown of law and order.
