President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to comment on the brutal murder of Deborah Samuel in Sokoto State.
The 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education was beaten, stoned and burnt to death by some guys on Thursday over blasphemy.
She was accused of blasphemy against the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
The voice note she sent to a WhatsApp group and the replies gotten trended before the incident occurred.
The Police confirmed they got a report of the riot at about 9 am. Two suspects have been arrested.
More than 24 hours after the incident, President Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the Federal Government are yet to make any comment.
This is despite press releases about Buhari and Osinbajo from their spokespersons.
As of 1:30 pm on Friday, the presidency had issued four statements, not having to mention Deborah’s killing.
The releases were about President Buhari bidding farewell to outgoing ministers; his meeting with Albino Mathom Ayuel, envoy of South Sudan President Salva Kiir Mayardit.
Others include a recap of Buhari’s visit to Abidjan in Cote D’Ivoire last week and Osinbajo’s consultations with the All Progressives Congress (APC) across states.
Nigerians on and off social media are outraged by the silence of the country’s leadership.
Earlier, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar deleted a Twitter post which condemned the lynching.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant claimed he didn’t authorize it.
