Blasphemy: Another Christian Lady Escapes Death In Bauchi

Barely one week after a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, Deborah Yakubu, was killed for alleged blasphemy, another Christian lady narrowly escaped jungle justice in Katanga, Headquarters of Warji local government area of Bauchi State on Friday.

Muslim youths in the area mounted a serious search for the lady immediately after the Jumat prayers but could not find her after she was whisked away to safety by resident.

Angered by the development, the youths destroyed properties belonging to Christians in area while several people including the Pastor of ECWA Church were injured in the ensuing fracas.

A leader of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), in the state confirmed the incident to journalists.

He said the state’s Commissioner of Police and the Senior Special Assistant on Religious Affairs to the governor had been briefed on the matter.

He, however, urged the Christian community in the state not to allow the situation to degenerate.
