Men of the Sokoto state police command have arraigned the two suspects who were arrested in connection with the murder of the 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, Deborah Samuel.
Deborah who was in her final year in the college was gruesomely murdered by her colleagues who accused her of making a blasphemous comment about Prophet Mohammed in their class Whatsapp group.
The suspects identified as Bilyaminu Aliyu and Aminu Hukunchi, who are students of the college, were arraigned before a magistrate’s court in the state.
After the suspects pleaded not guilty to the charges, the police prosecutor, Inspector Khalil Musa, urged the court for another date to enable the police to complete their investigation.
However, the defense counsels led by Professor Mansur Ibrahim, who did not oppose the application, pleaded with the court to grant the defendants bail, citing sections 157, 161(a,f), and 164 of the administration of criminal justice law of Sokoto state, as well as 36(5) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended.
The court however adjourned the ruling on the application to a later date which would be communicated to the lawyers.

Only 2 arrests why for I can recognize that at 7 persons faces were on camera live. At least 10 animals should have been arrested now.
