The authorities of the Zamfara State Polytechnic Talata Mafara in
North-western Nigeria on Monday afternoon closed down the institution in
a bid to stave off bloodshed over accusation of blasphemy.
According to a source, trouble started when a Christian student of the
polytechnic was accused of blaspheming Islam by a Muslim student.
“The Muslim student insisted on killing the Christian student for
blaspheming Islam. It took the intervention of other students who rallied
against the planned killing of the student. As at the time of filing this
report, students have been ordered out of the school premises, just a
deployment of policemen have been invited to guard against breakdown of
law and order.
