Five persons were on Friday arraigned before a court in Kano over last week’s killing of a trader on allegation of blasphemy.

The killing of Bridget Agbahime by a mob at Kano’s Kofar Wambai Market sparked national outrage.

Police said she was accused of blaspheming the Prophet Mohammed of Islam before being clubbed to death.

President Muhmmadu Buhari and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano have condemned the attack, and have demanded the culprits be brought to justice.

The police in Kano on Friday arraigned Dauda Ahmad, Abdullahi Mustapha, Zubairu Abubakar, Abdullahi Abubakar and Musa Abdullahi before Chief Magistrate Court on a four-count charge.

The suspects were charged with incitement, culpable homicide and mischief, based on sections 144, 80, 51 and 327 of the penal code.

Dauda Ahmad, who is the prime suspect, was accused of leading others to attack and hack Mrs. Agbahime to death.

If found guilty, Mr. Ahmad could face the death penalty.
