Tension In Borno As Another Lady Insults Prophet Muhammad


There is palpable fear in Borno State as some residents are said to have launched a hunt for another lady for allegedly insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

The lady identified simply as Naomi Gomi is said to have committed blasphemy with her comment on a Facebook page about the Islam prophet.

There is uncertainty on what particular statement she made as her accusers have not been able to reveal the exact statement she made against Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

She has however denied responsibility for the said post, claiming her account has been hacked since last year.

Recall that last week, Deborah Samuel was stoned to death by some Muslim fanatics who later burnt her lifeless body.

Naomi’s comment has since triggered a barrage of reactions as someone volunteered the lady’s location and house with a warning to get her.

Due to the threat by some people to give Deborah treatment, security agents are said to evacuate Naomi and her family late Saturday.

Security agencies were subsequently placed on red alert as the police and other sister agencies were seen patrolling the streets of Maiduguri to nip any uprising in the bud.
