Riots broke out in parts of Sokoto state on Saturday as some residents, believed to be Muslim, took to the streets to protest the arrest of the suspect in the killing of Deborah Samuel, who was sentenced on Thursday for allegedly insulting the Prophet Muhammad lynching.

Protesters attacked some churches along the Ahmadu Bello Way in the state capital, while demanding the release of the suspect, SaharaReporters reported.

A Catholic church and an evangelical church building called ECWA were reportedly destroyed by protesters.

A number of southeastern Aboriginal shops living in the area were also destroyed in the incident.

The Daily Mail’s efforts to contact the Sokoto State Police Command failed as police public relations officer ASP Sanusi did not answer the phone and repeatedly avoided text messages forwarded to him.

Meanwhile, Sokoto Governor Aminu Tambuwal has imposed a 24-hour curfew to curb the unrest.
