The Deeper Life Church pastor and husband of a 74-year-old woman allegedly killed for “insulting” Prophet Mohammed has clarified that his wife was not beheaded. He was present when a mob allegedly made to believe Bridget, his wife, blasphemed the holy prophet, lynched her.
The pastor said the mob beat his wife to death after apparently snatching her from the hands of the Nigeria Police. He said an Alhaji in the area had tried to save her to no avail. Prior to the clarification, it had been widely reported that Bridget was beheaded and her head paraded, but the pictures were fake.
The Kano State Police Command has succeeded in arresting two key suspects: Dauda Ahmed and Subeiru Abubakar. Ahmed was the man who instigated the attack after Bridget allegedly stopped him from performing ablution (washing of feet before Islamic prayer) in front of her shop.
