Catriona Laing, the British high commissioner to Nigeria, condemned the assassination of Deborah Samuel, a Christian student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto state, by a mob in the state for supposed blasphemy.

In a tweet posted on Friday, May 13, Laing responded to the murder by stating that those responsible for the death of the Christian student must be brought to justice in accordance with the law.

She said;

I condemn the murder of Deborah Samuel in Sokoto, and urge the police and relevant authorities to ensure the perpetrators of this horrific act are made to face justice in line with the law.
