How True Was The Christianah Oluwatoyin Oluwasesin Story?(christian Prosecution) by Nobody: 7:09pm On Sep 28, 2010
On March 21 of 2007, Christianah who was a Christian Nigerian secondary school teacher was killed when one of her students allegedly said she had disrespected the Koran, when she threw some of his books away. Incensed by the action, the youth began shouting Allah Akbar or God is great and then caused other Muslims to join in. She was dragged and beaten until she was stabbed to death by the angry mob. Later her naked body was burnt in public.


She is survived by her husband Femi and a son and daughter. According to the Voice of the Martyrs magazine her husband said of her death “[My children] are a constant reminder of my dear wife and how we both desire to raise them in the ways of the Lord. I have no option but to forgive those who have taken my wife’s life away even though justice has not yet prevailed.”

Christianah Oluwatoyin Oluwasesin (first name also given as Christiana, last name also as Oluwaseesin, Oluseesin or Olusesan), (Ekiti State, 1977 – Gandu, Gombe State, 21 March 2007) , was a Christian Nigerian teacher who was lynched by Muslim pupils for allegedly desecrating the Qur'an at a secondary school in Gandu, Gombe State, Nigeria, on March 21, 2007. Oluwasesin, a mother of two, was assigned to supervise an Islamic Religious Knowledge exam. When one of the students wanted to enter the exam hall with his books, Oluwasesin collected them and threw them outside.

The students claimed that one of the books was a copy of the Qur'an, started to chant "Allahu Akbar" (Allah is Great) and chased her to the school principal's office. They dragged her out of the office, stripped her naked and stabbed her to death. They then burnt her corpse in a car, beat up the school principal, a Muslim, for offering refuge to her, and burned down three classroom blocks, the school clinic, the administrative block and the library. Gombe State Governor Mohammed Danjuma Goje ordered the immediate closure of all secondary schools in the state and the deployment of soldiers and policemen to strategic points in the state, especially churches. The marauding students where only 12 - 14 years old and supposedly joined by members of a gang called Yan Kalare.Three persons were arrested in connection with the murder. They were arraigned before the Federal High Court, Gombe, which had not yet delivered judgement on the matter in March 2008
