Azman Airline has distanced itself from Captain Jamil Abubakar after he made a tweet allegedly justifying the stoning to death of Deborah Samuel, a Christian student in Sokoto.
Tweeting following Deborah’s death, Captain Jamil, a pilot and son of former Inspector General of Police Mohammed Abubakar, tweeted: “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 D£ATH! in most religions including Christianity. Respect Peoples religion it’s simple!”
“In Islam the Sharia court handles these cases. Islam put rules & regulations to control peoples action and motives, so the wrong ones are not cheated and justice is served the right way”, he added.
Soon after his tweet, many called on Azman Airline to sack him, as some also called for Azman Airline to be boycotted.
Though he has deleted the tweets, Azman Airline has now distanced themselves from his tweets, saying the last time he worked with them was in 2019 and they will not be responsible for any former staff.
