Some Islamic extremists have stoned and set ablaze a yet to be identified young man over alleged blasphemous comment against Prophet Muhammad.
The man is said to be a member of the vigilante unit in Abuja.
More so, it was gathered that the incident occurred at Timber Market in Federal Housing Authority (FHA) Lugbe area of Abuja.
As the story developed, reports submitted that the mob first gorged out the man’s eyes in one of the security posts in Timber Market where he was locked up, then stoned and immediately set him ablaze.
Further reports said police officers from Lugbe station arrived at the scene and fired gunshots into the air for more than 40 minutes in a bid to disperse the hoodlums.
The police, however, are yet to release a statement on the incident at the time of filing this report.
