Buhari condemned this act as he seeks an extensive probe into all that happened before and during the incident.

“The news of the killing of the young lady by fellow students was a matter of concern and demanded an impartial, extensive probe into all that happened before and during the incident. Buhari stated.

“Muslims all over the world demand respect for the Holy Prophets, incl Isah (Alaihissalaam, Jesus Christ) & Muhammad (SAW) but where transgressions occur, as alleged to be the case in this instance, the law does not allow anyone to take matters into their hands.”

The GCFR added that only a constituted authority must be allowed to deal with such matters when they arise, according to the preaching of religious leaders.

“No person has the right to take the law into his or her own hands in this country. Violence has and never will solve any problem” The statement read.

The President extended the nation’s condolences to the family of the deceased student and wished all those injured a quick recovery.
