Deborah Samuel: Womanifesto Outcries Women Killings

Enough is enough,” a coalition of 300 women’s organizations led by Womanifesto denounced the assassination of Deborah Samuel, Yakubu, a student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, by Muslim fanatics on Saturday.

Her assailants allegedly killed her and set her flames after she advised them not to share religious items on their WhatsApp group.

According to the women, her assassination without the benefit of school authorities was the most flagrant example of religious intolerance in Nigeria.

The coalition demanded the declaration of a state of emergency on the killings of women and girls, calling on the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, to take a public interest in the matter alongside the killings of other women.

Womanifesto also demanded a coordinated and collective call out in all states that have yet to implement the VAP Act 2015.

The 300 women’s organizations issued a statement headlined “Women groups in Nigeria condemn the cold blooded death of Deborah for “religious blasphemy,” which was signed on their behalf by Abiola Akiyode-Afolabi, Executive Director, Women Advocates Research and Documentation Centre.

Nigerian women and girls, she believes, must not continue to be endangered species, endangering the country’s bright future.

“Womanifesto demands a comprehensive Justice Sector and System Reform to strengthen law and enforcement especially as it concerns the rights of women. The current sector and system mostly exonerates men for crimes against women and girls and this must stop.

“We also demand the declaration of a state of emergency on the killings of women and girls and a concerted and collective call out of all States which have not implemented the VAP Act 2015.

“We call on religious leaders in Sokoto and beyond to speak out against this dastardly act. Religious bodies and leaders have a moral responsibility to foster and promote peace, religious freedoms and eschew intolerance among the adherents of their faiths. Nigerians want to see religious leaders play a unifying role and not champion divisions among the faiths”, the women groups said.
