A video has emerged of an Islamic cleric calling on his followers to ensure they kill the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Dioceses, Most Reverend Matthew Kukah.

This is coming days after some Muslim youths lynched a female student, Deborah Yakubu, for alleged blasphemy in Sokoto.

Speaking in Hausa, the Islamic cleric described Bishop Kukah as “The pagans’ leader of Sokoto State.”

The video shared by a journalist, Simon Reef Musa, on his Facebook page, translates thus:

“The pagans’ leader of Sokoto state, Matthew Hassan Kukah, is said to have said something that I read on Facebook. Let him continue. I swear we shall kill him. We are not joking.

“Let him continue. We must kill him. Let us desist from talking on this matter (killing of Deborah). She abused the prophet and may God bless the people who delivered instant judgement on her.

“Of course, there were mistakes because those sent did things they were not supposed to do. After being killed for abusing the prophet, why then engage in burning down property?”
