The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Osun State chapter has condemned the killing of Deborah Samuel over alleged blasphemy.
The Association appealed to the Federal Government to ensure justice is done following the death of the 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State.
CAN Chairman in Osun State Bishop Amos Kayode Ogunrinde stated this during a peaceful protest organized by the body held at its secretariat in Owode Ede, Osun State.
He maintained that the action is totally wrong and unacceptable by the CAN
Armed with placards with various inscriptions such as ‘We need justice for Deborah,’ We Say No To Islamic Extremists,’ among others, they appealed to the government, authorities, and security agencies to act fast and address abuse of the constitution before it leads to a more serious conflict.
Deborah Samuel was killed and set ablaze on 12 May 2022 by some of her colleagues on the campus premises on the bases of making blasphemous statements.
