Protest: Tambuwal imposes curfew in Sokoto

Aminu Waziri Tambuwal

Sokoto State Governo, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has imposed a curfew in the state in order to curb further spread of violence amidst a mob rampage for the release of Deborah Yakubu’s murder suspects.

It will be recalled that Deborah Yakubu, a 200-level home economics student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, was killed at about 9:00 a.m. for allegedly criticising Prophet Muhammad.

Her killing has sparked nationwide outrage, with political and religious leaders demanding urgent arrest and prosecution of all suspects.

Checks revealed that the governor said the directive was issued “in pursuance of peace and order in Sokoto metropolis and the entire state.”

Violent outbreaks have been reported across Sokoto on Saturday amidst protests for the release of those responsible for Thursday’s killing of Ms Samuel.
