BREAKING: Tension Rocks Law School over Blasphemy Claims
There is tension in the Lagos campus of the Nigerian Law School as one of the Christian students, Madu Vitrus Sunday, sent alleged blasphemous posts in several WhatsApp groups within the campus on Sunday.
Angered by the post, it was reliably gathered that some of the hardline Muslim students vowed to deal with the student if action is not immediately taken by the school.
“What he posted is the ugliest form of blasphemy against our Holy Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him. Even some of us the moderate ones can not tolerate that kind of insult against the Prophet,” an angry student who preferred not to be named said.
It was gathered that despite the fact that some Christian students on the campus are currently mediating to calm the frayed nerves of irate Muslim students, the tension is increasing.
The Muslim Students Society of Nigeria, Nigerian Law School chapter, however wrote a petition to the school authority for “spreading callous and blasphemous statements agains the Holy Prophet of Islam – Muhammad, PBUH, without any regards to the sensibilities of the Muslim students”
