Nigeria (AHN) - A Christian teacher was attacked and killed after some high school students in Gombe, northeastern Nigeria, accused her of desecrating the Koran Wednesday, a police official said.

Oluwatoyin Olushekan was murdered by her students while conducting an Islamic Religious Knowledge exam. Authorities said the students accused her of tearing a portion of the Koran she seized from a female student during the exam.

The angry students also burned her car and set three blocks of classrooms ablaze.

Bashir Dikko, Gombe State police spokesman said their intervention had prevented the incident from turning into a bloody riot.

"The school principal, who is a Muslim sustained minor injuries as he was also beaten by the students when he tried to shield the woman from her assailants," Dikko told the Middle Eastern Times. "We are still investigating the cause of the incident and we have embarked on a 24-hour patrol to ensure the maintenance of law and order."

Since 1999, about 15,000 people have been killed in religious, communal and political clashes in Nigeria.

In February 2006, at least five people were killed and several churches burned down in a Christian-Muslim infuriated conflict.

And the liberals will tell you it is a misunderstood religion based on peace and reason. Then they will condemn Christianity as a tool of the Right to control our lives and bodies.

I am afraid you are correct. They will see no problem with this. Now let me turn this around.

Headline: Homosexual Teacher Murdered by Students for Defiling Their Sacred School.

What do you think the response would then be? Hmm. Makes one wonder where our true allegience lies, wouldn't you say?
