In a statement sent by his media adviser, Malam Garba Shehu, on Friday in Abuja, the president expressed his displeasure at the news of the young lady’s murder by other students.

According to him, the matter requires a thorough, unbiased investigation of everything that occurred prior to and during the occurrence.

Muslims all around the world, he said, demand that the Holy Prophets, including Isah (Alaihissalam, Jesus Christ) and Muhammad (SAW)  be respected, “but where transgressions occur, as alleged to be the case in this instance, the law does not allow anyone to take matters into their hands.

“Moreover, religious leaders preach that it is not for the believer to judge the actions of another person.

“The constituted authority must be allowed to deal with such matters when they arise.

“No person has the right to take the law in his or her own hands in this country. Violence has and never will solve any problem.”

Buhari also ordered the Ministries of Material and Culture, Police Affairs, and Communications and Digital Economy to collaborate with GSM carriers and tech firms to assist stop the propagation of false and inflammatory information on social media.

The president expressed his sympathies to the family of the dead student and hoped a speedy recovery to all those hurt.

He praised the Sokoto State Government’s quick response to the situation and urged religious and community leaders to educate individuals about the importance of using their right to free expression properly.

While an inquiry is underway to determine the remote and proximate causes of the tragedy, Buhari has urged for restrained media remarks and public calm.
