Ex-IGP’s son defends killing of blasphemers


Captain Jamil Abubakar, the son of a former Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has defended the killing of blasphemers.

Jamil, who is an experienced pilot and President of JMD Foundation, a non-profit organisation, said this in a tweet on Friday night.

Jamil, who is a son-in-law to Africa’s wealthiest man, Aliko Dangote, said this even at the time people were not in support of the killing of Deborah Samuel, a student in Sokoto State that was beaten, stoned and buried for allegedly blaspheming Prophet Muhammad.

The pilot opposed that all religions are against blasphemy as he went ahead to advise people to respect the beliefs of others.

He tweeted, “In Islam, we respect the Injil, Taura, Zabur, we were never taught to disrespect any of the books, or any of the prophets From Adam to Muhammad SAW and the Quran.

“The punishment for blasphemy is death! in most religions including Christianity. Respect people’s religion. It’s simple!”
