The Imam of the National Mosque Abuja, Ibrahim Maqari, has reacted to the lynching of Deborah Yakubu, a Christian student in Sokoto State, over alleged blasphemy, saying that the deceased had crossed the line.

On Thursday, a group of students of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto murdered their female coursemate for insulting the Prophet of Islam via a voice note sent to a class Whatsapp group.


The school has since been shut down by the state government, while the police had arrested some of the suspects.


Reacting to the development via his verified Twitter handle, Mr Maqari stressed that the Muslims have some red lines which must not be crossed.

He said: “It should be known to everyone that we the Muslims have some red lines beyond which MUST NOT be crossed.

“The dignity of the Prophet, PBUH, is at the forefront of the red lines. If our grievances are not properly addressed, then we should not be criticized for addressing them ourselves,” he posted.
