By Musa Ibrahim:

The Governor of Sokoto State, Ahmed Aliyu, has declared that his administration will take strong action against individuals who commit ‘blasphemy’ against the Islamic Prophet Muhammad bin Abdullah (PBUH). The governor’s statement, conveyed by his spokesperson, Abubakar Bawa, emphasized the importance of safeguarding the honor of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), particularly in Sokoto State, where the Muslim population is predominant.

Waffi TV reports that the Sokoto State Police Command confirmed the tragic killing of a butcher named Usman Buda on Sunday, carried out by extremist Muslims who accused him of making a blasphemous remark. Some of Buda’s business associates who attempted to rescue him were also injured and are currently receiving medical treatment.

In response to this incident, Bawa emphasized the necessity for all residents to show respect and protect the dignity and character of the Prophet. The police have assured that they will investigate the matter thoroughly and bring the culprits to justice.

The statement read, “Sokoto State Governor, Dr. Ahmed Aliyu, has called on the people of the state to remain calm and law-abiding at all times. The governor cautioned the people against any act capable of degrading the personality of Prophet Muhammad SAW, especially in a state like Sokoto, which is a predominantly Muslim-dominated community.

“Dr Aliyu said that Sokoto people have so much respect and regard for Prophet Muhammad SAW, hence the need for all the residents to respect, protect his dignity and personality.

“I want to call on the people of Sokoto State to avoid taking laws into their own hands and instead report any alleged crime or blasphemy to the appropriate quarters for necessary action.

“Our religion does not encourage taking laws into one’s hands, so let us try to be good followers of our religion,” he appealed.

The governor’s spokesperson additionally highlighted that the governor has cautioned potential instigators to reconsider their actions, emphasizing that Sokoto is not the appropriate location for such individuals.

Bawa said, “He added that the present administration will not take the issue of blasphemy lightly, and will deal decisively with anyone found guilty of any act aimed at degrading the personality of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, in line with the provision of Islamic laws.

“The governor assured the people of the state of his administration’s commitment to guarantee the safety of lives and property of all law-abiding citizens.

“The governor also warned would-be troublemakers to have a change of mind, adding that Sokoto is a wrong place for them.”
