The Northern Governors Forum NGF has called for tranquil following the killing of Deborah Samuel, a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto,for  alleged  blasphemy.

The chairman of the forum and governor of Plateau, Mr Simon Lalong, made the appeal in a statement conveyed by his spokesperson, Makut Macham in Jos.

He said the governors are concerned about the development describing it as an extra-judicial measure of addressing perceived contravention.

The  governors appeal for calm following reports of the hijack of a peaceful protest which later turned violent and led to the imposition of a embargo in Sokoto and its environs, warning that any attempt to adopt self-help in addressing grievances whether religious or otherwise, could lead to more disorder.

They strained the need for people from the northern part of the country and Nigerian at large to show love, tolerance and respect for one another irrespective of faith, ethnicity or other affiliations.

The Forum commiserated with Gov. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal over the incident, while commending him for the proactive measures he adopted to re-establish normalcy in Sokoto.
