Deborah had been burnt to death by her colleagues for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad.

Atiku, who is a presidential hopeful under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), amid the outrage trailing the student’s murder called for the prosecution of her killers.
He wrote on Twitter, “There cannot be a justification for such gruesome murder. Deborah Yakubu was murdered and all those behind her death must be brought to justice. My condolences to her family and friends.”
However, some Muslims in his comment section threatened not to vote for him while some said they were awaiting his coming to Sokoto for his presidential campaign.

Succumbing to the threat, the former Vice-President deleted the tweet.
On Facebook, the former Vice President in a message on his verified Hausa page distanced himself from the message. He also stated that any message on social media that did not come with the initials “A. A.” was not his.
“This evening I received information that a post was made that doesn’t agree with my orders. I use this to announce that any post without A. A. is not from me. May God protect us,” he wrote in Hausa language.
However, Nigerians on social media have condemned Atiku’s hypocrisy stating that he is more interested in the votes than the safety of those he is calling upon to vote for him.
Below are some reactions from Twitter:
