Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has expressed anger over the decision by some prominent leaders in Nigeria to keep mum on the killing of Deborah Samuel, a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto.
It was reported that while the matter of the 200-level student who was burnt alive for allegedly insulting Prophet Mohammed trends online, some Nigerian leaders are yet to speak up.
As of the time of filing this report, President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to react to the unfortunate incident which occurred on Thursday.
Similarly, a presidential aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who earlier condemned the incident in a post on his Twitter and Facebook handles, has pulled down the content.
Atiku’s decision is currently triggering reactions as the former Vice President is trending on number one on Twitter.
Reacting, Fani-Kayode said the leaders, no matter their positions, who are yet to publicly condemn the murder, are nothing but cowards.
On his verified Twitter handle, FFK wrote, “Any so-called leader that remains silent and refuses to publicly condemn the murder of Deborah is a COWARD. I don’t care who or what you are.
“If you cannot bring yourself to condemn this cold-blooded and horrific murder, then you are nothing but a COWARD and I have contempt for you”.
