President Muhammadu Buhari declares a crack down on religious, ethic or any other form of violence in the country as he addresses the mob killings of eight people in Zamfara on Monday, August 22.

He tweeted, “I received news of the mob killings in Zamfara with great dismay. It is barbaric & unacceptable. I assure that the law will take its course. My prayers are with the families of the victims.”

“Under my watch we will work to ensure that there is no place for violence in the name of religion, ethnicity, or in any guise whatsoever.”

Police spokesman Shehu Mohammed narrated what caused the killings, “the mob of Muslim students in the town of Talata Mafara were enraged over alleged derogatory comments about the Prophet Mohammed by their Christian schoolmate, who they attacked.”

“The victim was later rescued by a passerby, a Muslim who rushed him to the police station for safety,” Shehu stated. “The mob then burned down the house of the rescuer with eight people inside.”

“The man who rescued the student and his wife were not among the dead.”

The school has been closed temporarily to avoid further conflict while a dusk-till-dawn curfew has been imposed on the town.
