An unidentified woman was yesterday killed at Yan Robobi in Kofar Wambai market in Kano by an irate mob, who accused her of blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed.

Sources revealed that the woman did not belong to any association in the market, making it difficult for any of the traders to contact security operatives to avert the disaster before she was eventually hacked to death by the angry mob.

It was also gathered that the woman, who sold plastic wares, was in the company of her husband when she was brutally murdered.

The incident was said to have occurred when the market was preparing to close for the day’s business.

The victim was accused of blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed during a religious argument, which ensued within the market.

An eyewitness who spoke on account of anonymity, said some youths, armed with dangerous weapons, attacked and slit the woman’s throat to the chagrin of other traders in the market.

It was also learnt that the remains of the woman had been deposited at the morgue, while investigation is in progress.

The spokesman of the state police command, Musa Magaji Majia, confirmed the incident.

News Express reports that this is the second of such incident in the North in less than a week. On Sunday night a Muslim mob killed an Igbo trader, Mr. Methodus Chimaije Emmanuel, 24, in Pandogari, Rafi LGA of Niger State, for the allegation of posting a blasphemous statement about Prophet Muhammad on the social media.

The incident led to a religious crisis in which four people were reported dead and several property destroyed, leading to the imposition of a dusk to dawn curfew on the town by the military.
