Blasphemy: Eight People Burnt To Death At Abdu Gusau Polytechnic, Zamfara

No fewer than eight people have been burnt to death by a mob at Abdu Gusau Polytechnic, Talata Mafara of Zamfara State as a result of alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) by a student of the college.

The incident occurred on Monday when a male student was alleged to have committed blasphemy during an exchange of words with a Muslim friend, a situation which caused tension in the school.

It was also learnt that a mob had penetrated into the house where the alleged person was said to be hiding to avoid being lynched. After they gained entrance, they set the house ablaze along with seven other persons in it.

Police in Zamfara state confirmed the incident and imposed an indefinite curfew in the town with a view to restoring peace in the area.

Spokesman of the police in the state, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Shehu Muhammad, in a press statement, cautioned any person or group of persons found violating the curfew order to desist from doing so or they would be arrested and prosecuted.

However, the authority of the polytechnic has closed down the institution with immediate effect for sanity.


  1. Islam is a religion of hate and violence. Their god and Mohammed are cripples that's why they kill, maim and destroy on their behalf .. The so called emir of kano won't see this!

  2. i wish islam should be deleted from this world. so as peace to come to the world, i hate your religion and your God mohammed

  3. Muslim is nt a good religion

  4. And all of you that commented are Christians, you need to read your bibles properly and see what God thinks of Hate, the people you condemned both the innocent and guilty, you might end up with them in hell.
