May 20, (THEWILL) – Sokoto State governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has lifted the curfew imposed on Sokoto metropolis, following a protest against the arrest of some suspected killers of Miss Deborah Samuel Yakubu.

THEWILL had reported that Deborah, a 200-level Home Economics student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Deborah Samuel Yakubu, was killed last week Thursday, over alleged blasphemy.

Following a violent protest against the arrest of some of the suspected killers of Deborah, the State Government had last week Friday, imposed curfew on Sokoto metropolis.

The Governor explained that the curfew was lifted after due consultations with security chiefs in the state.
