Captain Jamil Abubakar, son of former Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Abubakar, has justified the killing of blasphemers.

Jamil who is the son-in-law of Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, in a tweet on Friday averred that the purmishment for blasphemy is death.

This comes in the wake of the anger over the death of Deborah Samuel, a Christian girl in Sokoto State who was stoned to death and burned for supposed blasphemy by some of her Muslim classmates.

“In Islam we respect the Injil, Taura, Zabur, we were never taught to disrespect any of the book, or any of the prophets From Adam to Muhammad SAW & the Quran. The punishment for Blasphemy is DEATH! in most religions including Christianity. Respect Peoples religion it’s simple!” His tweet read.

However, media personality, Osi questioned Jamil’s tweet, saying, “I’m sincerely shocked. You actually believe its ok to take another’s life over blasphemy?”

Responding to Osi’s tweet, Jamil wrote,

“What my personal opinion is, has nothing to do with the rules in place Osi. I didn’t make them, I’m not the sharia court. I live by Islamic faith. I don’t promote Violence. The Law is the Law. So this is not about what I think! The laws have been there. Check more on Blasphemy.”

  1. You will never know peace for saying such a thing, thank God you are a mere mortal and not God, you are a waste to humanity

  2. Is unfortunate some educated people still allow such religious quotations to control their intellect. Those religious law were given to followers not the whole people in the world.We must use our heads for we are also important as those God or Allah used in writing those books that we depend on so much our time has seen a lot of transformations and so laws are needless now.

  3. what is the purpose of the sharia court if religious zealots can just take the law into their hands and murder people for free speech.
    I am so disappointed that Nigeria is breeding these kind of individuals with very parochial reasoning faculty. Go ahead a kill every woman for not covering their faces ?
    Should sharia law be binding on none Muslims in a country with true federalism. Nigeria is not a sharia state, Nigeria is a free state , freedom of religion is enshrined in our constitution.
    We are all doomed if the upcoming generation is equally corrupted with discriminative teachings.
