Jamil Mohammed Abubakar, a Nigerian IT expert, philanthropist, and a professional pilot has gone viral across all social media platforms and has gotten a lot of people talking after making a statement on his Twitter handle, that appears to justify the murder of Deborah Samuel, a student at Shehu Shagari College of Education.

Many citizens have reacted angrily to his statement, believing it to be inappropriate in light of his societal influence. Irene Chiamaka Nwachukwu, his baby mama, has also filed for sole custody of their son as a result of this incident.

Who is Jamil Mohammed Abubakar?

Jamil Mohammed Abubakar popular known as Captain Jamyl was born on January 29, 1986, to Mohammed Dikko Abubakar, the former Nigerian Inspector General of Police, and his wife Maryam Abubakar.

He is married to Fatima Dangote, the daughter of Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote, and is a graduate of Kingston University and London Enfield College.

Jamil’s love for humanitarian and philanthropic activity has resulted in the founding of two organizations that mentor, alleviate, and provide services to the less fortunate.

He is the President of the JMD Foundation, a non-profit. He’s also the originator of an aviation mentoring program, where he mentors and coaches anyone interested in pursuing a career as a pilot.

Jamil Mohammaed Abubakar Trending For the Wrong Reasons

Following the murder of a Christian female student Deborah, a Shehu Shagari College of Education student who was accused of making derogatory remarks about Prophet Mohammed (SAW) on campus, Jamil Abubakar resorted to Twitter to express his thoughts on the incident.

His tweet reads: “In Islam, we respect the Injil, Taura, Zabur, we were never taught to disrespect any of the book or any of the prophets from Adam to Muhammad SAW and the Quran. The punishment for blasphemy is death In most religions including Christianity. Respect people’s religion, it’s simple”

This statement infuriated many individuals, particularly aviation specialists and stakeholders, who expressed worry that the pilot’s opinion revealed a personality that could jeopardize passenger safety. Some of them went on to demand that the airline that employed this pilot fire him or that the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) withdraw his license.

Azman Air, on the other hand, has posted a public notice declaring that the pilot who used to fly for them was no longer with the company.

The airline’s statement reads, “Captain Jamil Abubakar is no longer a pilot with Azman Air; his last flight with us was 22nd December 2019. We refuse to take responsibility for a comment or view of former staff. The general public should kindly take note.”

Jamil Abubakar Baby Mama Filed for Sole Custody of Their Son

Due to Jamil’s tweet about Deborah Samuel, a student at Shehu Shagari College, being killed for blasphemy, hIs baby mama has filed for sole custody of their child.

Jamil’s baby mama, Irene Chiamaka Nwachukwu, took to Instagram to publish screenshots of the court documents she filed to request full custody of their child. Irene expressed her dissatisfaction and concern about entrusting her son to someone with such a radical viewpoint.

The following are excerpts from her statement;

“My child attends a school with pupils, from various backgrounds and beliefs, it will therefore be dangerous to expose him to such teachings.”

“I’ve been the only responsible parent and my child has been in my custody since birth, so it’ll be best if he stops contending with me in court at this time.”

“This is also to note that I will not be asking for or accepting any child support, or needing his assistance with parenting such as attending Parents Teachers Association meetings, picking a school, or having a say on what school he attends, or the house the child lives in as was stated in the countersuits filed against me where he claimed paternity to the child who I’ve been solely responsible for in the last five years”.


While the philanthropist pilot has already issued a statement claiming that his tweet was misinterpreted, it may well be too late as he has already trended.
