Update: Eight persons burnt to death in Abdu Gusau Polytechnic religious crisis in Zamfara


Eight persons were burnt to death yesterday following the religious crisis that broke out at the Abdu Gusau Polytechnic, Talata-Mafara in Zamfara state. According to eyewitnesses, a student who is a Christian allegedly made a blasphemous statement about Prophet Muhammad. This infuriated his Muslim colleagues who immediately descended on him, beating him to a pulp.

A Muslim man by the name Tajudeen, who tried to salvage the situation, rushed in and was able to use his car to carry the unconscious Christian student to the hospital. ‎

This infuriated the Muslim students who then went to Tajudeen's house and burnt it down, killing eight occupants in his house.

The state governor, ‎Abdulaziz Yari, joined hundreds of others to bury the deceased who were killed in the inferno.

Meanwhile a 12-hour curfew in the community starting from 7p.m. to 7a.m. daily has been imposed by the police.
