Aliyu Tilde, the commissioner for education in Bauchi, has expressed support for the violent mob of fanatics that killed Deborah Samuel.
Mr Tilde, a respected northern intellectual, said Ms Samuel’s murder was provoked and excoriated Christians and others dismissing blasphemy as uncivilised to seek a psychiatric evaluation.
“Oh my god, oh my god The mouth cuts the neck. If you’re not provoked by this, visit a psychiatrist, please,” the education commissioner said on Facebook Saturday morning. “We must teach our children to respect others.”
Mr Tilde translated what Ms Samuel wrote on WhatsApp that warranted her murder as: “This group is not made for the post of stupid things. Done for past Q, if there is a test, if given assignment, send it. Not that you will send us useless things. What is the prophet of Allah?”
A spokesman for Governor Bala Mohammed did not immediately answer enquiries about the administration’s position on Mr Tilde’s public endorsement of a Christian student’s murder.
