President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the rising killings of innocent Nigerians due to blasphemy in the country.
Leakblast.com recalls that recent killings due to blasphemy started with the gruesome murder of Deborah Samuel, a student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State in May.
Following Samuel’s killing, other killings due to blasphemy were recorded in Abuja and in Bauchi State and these incidents generated a lot of reactions from the President and Nigerians.
Speaking during a recent interview with Bloomberg News, President Buhari declared that no one has the right to take the law into his or her own hands.
The Nigerian leader added that the country has a long tradition of tolerance, asking the citizens to continue to tolerate each other’s religion and ethnicity.
