The deceased was stoned to death and later burnt by the angry mob, who are believed to be students of the college.

The college authorities immediately announced the closure of the school and ordered students to vacate the campus.

The police in the state later announced the arrest of two of the suspects.

In a statement, Sanusi Abubakar, the police public relations officer in the state, said other suspects caught in the viral video on Twitter “will soon be nailed too.”

Mr Abubakar said the students had “forcefully removed the victim from the security room where she was kept by the school authorities, killed her and burnt the building.”

He said the school had been closed down and police officers had been deployed to provide security at the school premises.

He added that the state commissioner of police, Kamaldeen Okunlola, appealed to residents to maintain peace and go about their lawful activities. He said the situation is under control.

The killing has also been condemned by religious and traditional leaders in Sokoto including the Sultanate Council and Catholic cleric Hassan Kukah.
