Azman Airline has reportedly sacked Captain Jamil Abubakar over a tweet he shared, justifying the lynching of a Christian student, Deborah Samuel by her Muslim counterparts for alleged blasphemy.
Deborah was beaten and stoned to death before she was set ablaze on Thursday.
Her crime was said to be a statement she made on her class WhatsApp group which her Muslim colleagues considered to be blasphemous to the Prophet.
Reacting to Deborah’s death, Captain Jamil, an experienced pilot, son of the former Inspector General of Police Mohammed Abubakar, and son-in-law of Africa’s richest man Alhaji Aliko Dangote, tweeted: “In Islam we respect the Injil, Taura, Zabur, we were never taught to disrespect any of the book, or any of the prophets From Adam to Muhammad SAW & the Quran.
“The punishment for Blasphemy is D£ATH! in most religions including Christianity.
Respect Peoples religion it’s simple!”
He added: “In Islam the Sharia court handles these cases. Islam put rules & regulations to control peoples action and motives, so the wrong ones are not cheated and justice is served the right way.”
He has now deleted the tweets after it caused outrage.
