AFP reported that Abdullakh Anjorov killed 47-year-old Samuel Patty, who contacted a Muslim father who wanted the teacher to expel his daughter.
The father, identified by the Daily Mail as Brahmin Chinn, is one of 16 people involved in the horrific murder that sent shock waves from France five years after the jihadists massacred 12 people in the satirical magazine Heido Were published.
Anzorov launched the attack as Patty was returning home from junior high school on Friday, where he taught at Conflance-Saint-Honorin, about 25 miles northwest of Paris.
Police sources did not reveal how the killers came in contact with the father, who had put his phone number in a Facebook post with a video call to protest against Pati.
The father – whose daughter was Patty’s student but was not in class at the time of the lesson, according to police sources – accused the teacher of “pornography” of showing a cartoon of a naked Mohammed.
The school said that Patty gave Muslim students the option to leave the classroom before the images were shown.
The father later posted another video attacking the teacher, in which he appeared alongside a known Islamic fundamentalist who has been detained by the police.
Authorities have also ordered the closure of a Paris suburb mosque, which was shared on Facebook by parents with a video taken by police in custody.
The man, who went to see the principal to complain, revealed the teacher’s name and the school’s name in the video.
Five schoolchildren are also being held on suspicion of helping to identify their victim in exchange for money.
Meanwhile, a national tribute in honor of Patty will be held on Wednesday at Paris’ Sorbonne University.
Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanker said he would posthumously be awarded the Legion d’Honneur, France’s highest award.
Azorov, who received a 10-year residency in France last March, faced responding to police after an attack with an air-gun rifle – and shouted “Allahu Akbar”, or “God the Great” in Arabic – As the officers opened fire. , killed him.
