Nigerian Activist, Aisha Yesufu has come under fire following her comment on the death of a Christian student in Sokoto. Aisha Yesufu had compared those who lynched the girl to people “that lynch thieves”.
According to Yesufu, she stated in a tweet that ” “If you are one of those that lynch thieves just take this moment to know that you and those sokoto students who killed their fellow student are the same. Hope you use this as a mirror in to your despicable acts. No one has the right in anyway whatsoever to kill another. No one!”
Meanwhile, some Nigerians displeased with Aisha Yesufus’ comments, took to Twitter to lambast the #ENDSARS activist over the comment.

Edujandon.com had reported earlier that a 200 Level student of Home Economics at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State, northern Nigeria, had been lynched by fellow students over alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad on Thursday, May 12, 2022.
The audio heard here revealed that Deborah Yakubu warned her classmates against posting religious things on a class WhatsApp group chat. She had said before her death; “Holy ghost fire, nothing would happen to me, is it by force you guys would always be sending this religious stuff in the group, the group wasn’t created for that, but rather as a notice for when there’s a test, assignment, exams, etc, not these nonsense Religious posts.”
In a swift action, the school was later shut down by the management to avoid escalation of the situation.
“Following today’s early morning Students rampage in the College, the College Management has resolved to close down the College indefinitely with immediate effect.
“Consequently, all students are hereby directed to vacate the College campus immediately,” the school said in a statement.
