Evidence of Evil ….
Murder Most Foul in Sokoto

Deborah Samuel , a student of Sheu Shagari College of Education Sokoto was killed just in a most gruesome manner by her fellow students on Thursday, May 12,2022.

Her offence : She advised on her class WhatsApp Group that postings should be restricted to issues about Academic and related matters. She said religious matters should be kept off the group chat. Some of her mates accused her of blasphemy and decided she must die.

They trailed her , cornered her , stoned her and battered her to death in full public glare.

Nobody came to her aide.

A sad day indeed .

The Police Statement :

“At about 0900hrs, a distress call was received from the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, stating that students were rioting over one female student named Deborah Samuel, a 200 level student, who was accused of making a social media post that blasphemed the holy prophet Muhammad (SAW).

Students forcefully removed the victim from the security room where she was hidden by the school authorities, killed her and burnt the building. The students banded together with miscreants and barricaded the Sokoto/Jega road.

Upon receiving the information, the DC Operations led a team of policemen and all other operational commanders in the state to the school, where the road was cleared and the situation was brought under control.

Two students were arrested in connection with the crime committed. The school has been closed down by the school authority, and policemen were deployed to give tight security coverage,”

“This has nothing to do with religion. Christians have lived peacefully with their Muslim neighbours here in Sokoto over the years.

The only obligation that is owed her immediate family, her fellow students and the school authority is the assurance that those who are guilty of this inhuman act, no matter their motivation, are punished according to the extant laws of our land.

This matter must be treated as a criminal act and the law must take its cause.”
