Man Narrates How He Narrowly Escaped Being Beheaded In Sokoto Over Blasphemy



Twitter user identified by his handle as @ChinonsoOk has narrated how he escaped being killed in Sokoto over blasphemy.

According to him, this happened when he was in JSS2. He added that it was his friends between the age of 13-15 that wanted to unleash the mayhem on him. Luckily he was saved by the vice principal who smuggled him out of school and told him never to come back.

This narrative is coming after news about a girl identified as Deborah Samuel of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto was beaten and burnt to death for allegedly committing blasphemy broke out.

Narrating his ordeal, he wrote:

“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.
