Former Vice president and a presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar has deleted a post he made on his Facebook and Twitter handles condemning the killing of Deborah Samuel, a 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto State, who was burnt on Thursday.

DAILY POST had reported that the student was beaten to a pulp and burnt alive on Thursday by male Muslim students who accused her of insulting Prophet Muhammed via a WhatsApp platform.

The school authority has shut down academic activities indefinitely as tension gripped residents of the area.
