How Zamfara Blasphemy Victims were Killed – Yari

by on August 25, 2016
Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State on Wednes­day narrated how eight innocent persons were killed last Monday after a false alarm of blasphemy of Prophet Mohammed was raised by a Muslim student against a Yoruba colleague.
The governor told State House correspondents that the victims were not Christians as being in­sinuated.
Yari, who had met be­hind close doors with President Muhammadu Buhari, told the newsmen that, “What happened is unnecessary and it’s not supposed to take place if not for the act of the devil”.
He explained that the intelligence he got from the security agencies indi­cated that a young student who was overpowered and beaten by a colleague after an argument, raised an alarm that his attack­er had abused Prophet Muhhamed, which at­tracted a lynch mob in a violent attack that spi­ralled to claim eight other lives while the original victim is still recuperat­ing in a hospital.
According to the gov­ernor, “There was a fight between two students and I think one of them injured the other and started shouting that he abused Prophet Mu­hammad and other stu­dents came and beat the other boy who is Yoruba and from Kogi State.
“Some people are say­ing he is a Muslim and some say the boy is a Christian, but they beat the student until he col­lapsed and thought he was dead. Security per­sonnel requested help from one shop owner who then took the boy to the hospital in his car.
“Then the students heard that the boy is still alive and is in the hospi­tal, so they went to the hospital. However, the boy was rescued by the army in the hospital, but I don’t know if the boy is alive or dead now.
“Then the students went back to the poly­technic and burnt the shop of the person who gave his car to rescue the boy and they came back to town again. The police in the division don’t have enough men to contain the riot. Before reinforce­ment came in, the crowd threw tyres into the man’s house and burned it down.

    Comment…As a gov while don’t u ascertain the true state of d boy’s health. The way this gov sounded, it appeared he is more interested in the boy dying than being alive.

    This is indeed a pity, GOD will surely fight for HIS own.

    It’s only a weak god that men fight for.
