The cause of the brutal murder of a female student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto State, identified as Deborah by her colleagues has been connected to a voice vote the deceased sent to her class’s WhatsApp group.
According to a Twitter link, the female student was said to have sent a voice note, protesting against the incessant sending of unnecessary messages to the group by her mates.
The original voice note posted has been deleted.
She was heard lamenting in the Hausa language to a religious broadcast message sent by another student to the group.
In a loose translation, she said, “This group chat was not created for you to be sending nonsense. It is for past questions, updates about tests, or other school matters. Not for nonsense or some rubbish prophet.”
It was gathered the usage of the phrase “nonsense prophet” might have angered the angry attackers and propelled the fatal assault against her.
The Sultanate in Sokoto State is among other Nigerians who have condemned the unwarranted attack and called on the police to investigate and arrest the perpetrators.
