The Bauchi State Commissioner for Education, Dr. Aliyu Tilde, has condemned the statement that led to the gruesome murder of Deborah Samuel, a female student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto State, by her colleagues over alleged blasphemy.
Recall that the victim, a 200-level female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, was burnt to death within the school premises on Thursday for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad.
Tilde, who expressed his dissatisfaction with the female student on his Facebook wall, added that Nigerians who are not provoked by her statement should visit a psychiatrist for a test.
The commissioner who headlined his post with the caption “Deborah: Words Can Kill”, wrote in the Hausa language, “Ba wai an yi group din nan don ture-turen abubuwan banza ba ne fa. An yi don past Q, in akwai test, in an ba da assignment, a tura. Ba wai abubuwan banzan ga za ku tuttura mana ba. Manzon Allah din me?“
Ayyah. Baki shi ke yanka wuya.”
This is translated as “This group is not made for the post of stupid things. Done for past Q, if there is a test, if given assignment, send it. Not that you will send us useless things. What is the prophet of Allah? I’m not sure how to
Oh my god, oh my god The mouth cuts the neck.”
Below his post, he stated that anyone who is not provoked by what Deborah said should visit a psychiatrist. “If you’re not provoked by this, visit a psychiatrist, please. We must teach our children to respect others”, he said.
