Nigerian Man Narrates How His JSS 2 Classmates Tried To Behead Him In Sokoto State Over His Alleged Anti-Islam Comment And How He Miraculously Escaped

A Nigerian man through his Twitter handle @ChinonsoOk, has narrated his ordeal while he was in a Junior secondary school in Sokoto State.

He was reacting to the death of Deborah Samuel, a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, lynched and burnt by his fellow students over alleged blasphemy.

According to him, he was accused of blasphemy by his classmates who attempted beheading him to atone for his sin. But for the intervention of his school’s vice principal who smuggled him out of the school and told him never to return, he would have been beheaded.

In his words: “I refuse to comment or even read posts from that carnage that happened in Sokoto. The PTSD I have from my own experience in that same Sokoto is still fresh. My classmates in JSS2!!! were going to behead me if the Muslim vice principal had not smuggled me out of the school. 2007.

“I had never been that scared in my life. People who I thought were my friends bayed for blood. How dare I? An infidel blaspheme? I was 13, the boys trying to kill me were around the same age. Yes! 13, 14, 15 year-olds. The VP hid me in his office and tried to calm them down.

“To no avail. Before long, word had got out of the school that an “infidel blasphemed” and a mob gathered outside the school walls vowing to burn down the school if I wasn’t handed over. Thank goodness for the bravery of that VP. He smuggled me out asked me never to return”.
