IGBO WOMAN BEHEADED IN KANO FOR ALLEGED BLASPHEMY
An Igbo woman was yesterday killed at Yan Robobi in Kofar Wambai market in Kano by an Islamic mob, who accused her of blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed.
It was gathered that the woman, who sold plastic wares, was in the company of her husband when she was brutally murdered.
The incident was said to have occurred when the market was preparing to close for the day’s business.
The victim was accused of blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed during a religious argument, which ensued within the market.
Sources revealed that traders refused to contact security operatives to avert the disaster before she was eventually hacked to death because they were mostly Muslims, whose associations she did not belong to.
An eyewitness, said some youths armed with dangerous weapons, attacked and slit the woman’s throat before the other traders in the market. It was also learnt that the remains of the woman had been deposited at the morgue.
The spokesman of the state police command, Musa Magaji Majia, confirmed the incident, but no significant action has been taken to fish out the culprits. There seem to be a sort of approval for the hideous crime.
