By our reporter/ A Christian female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Wamako, was on Thursday reportedly killed and her corpse set ablaze by a mob for allegedly blaspheming prophet Mohammed.
The deceased, identified only as Ms Deborah, was accused of passing unflattering comments about Prophet Mohammed on campus.
Following immediate threats to her safety, she was immediately evacuated to the security post of the school, according to a student who witnessed the incident.
But the mob pursued her to the security post and overpowered the personnel there.
