Public Figures opinion

A former Minister of Education, Dr Obiageli Ezekwesili and popular sociopolitical activist, Aisha Yesufu, has condemned the killing of a Christian student in Sokoto State, identified as Deborah Samuel.

She wrote on Twitter, ”Deborah sadly joins the long list of those who must be given Justice in this Land someday; no matter how long it takes for us to build a society where human life is respected and accorded dignity. Her “religious” killers will surely account. Someday. On earth and before God.

”May God comfort the family of a young woman who went to be educated and paid with her life just because a bunch of murderers accused her of “religious blasphemy” in a “Democracy” in 2022. May God speak the word that can strengthen Deborah’s family in Jesus name!”

Aisha wrote, ”Innalillahi wa inna ilayhi rajiun, What manner of barbarism just happened in Sokoto? Who the hell are you to take someone’s life? The Prophet (SAW) went to visit a man that usually insult & pour debris on him when was ill Nigeria keeps producing serial killers! Oghenna!

”They fight for God and leave their fight to God! While they are being killed by their fellow terrorists, their women and men raped, their houses burnt, their parents driven away for their villages and farms they do nothing but pray to God but kill a fellow citizen in cold blood!

”Nigeria just breaks you daily. A family just lost a daughter because heinous acts are unpunished and more people continue to practice them.

”The despicable beings are being killed by terrorists. The mindless and depraved cowards did not go and fight the terrorists killing and maiming. Kai!

”Has there ever been anyone prosecuted for these atrocious killings? Right from 1990 I have known of these atrocious killings in the name of religion but never heard of prosecution. We cannot keep producing serial killers who are also begetting new sets of serial killers.”

Cause Of Death

The purported reason Deborah Samuel, the female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto was killed and her body burnt by a mob today has been revealed.

According to Twitter users, Deborah had shared a voice note on her class Whatsapp group in which she challenged her colleagues who were posting religious information there.

She spoke in Hausa, however, according to a Twitter user who did the translation, Deborah was quoted to have said;

“Holy Ghost Fire, nothing’s going to happen to me, you should know what to be sending to this group, it’s not that the group was created to be sending nonsense, the group was created for posting things like, test assignment e.t.c. not the nonsense you are posting, no be only prophet, you are coming to play on me.” The nonsense she referred to is the religious posts.”

Her comments were said to have irked some of her colleagues who felt she disrespected Prophet Mohammed, and threatened to deal with her. When the tension was high, the school authorities took her to the security room to give her some protection. However, the enraged students overpowered the security officers, dragged Deborah out, and beat her until she died before setting her corpse on fire.

Opinions and Comments by Nigerians

  • She didn’t even say anything. Meanwhile, on Nairaland here we correctly idenfy the history of their prophet as a useless goat fvcking child fvcker. There is nothing special about Mohammed. He was an ordinary Arab that lived many years ago. Today, foolish Africans carry him for head like gala. God punish Islamic extremists. God punish Almajiri system. God punish the useless Arabs that brought Islam to Africa.

Say what you like about Christians, one thing is clear: Throughout the history of Nigeria no Christian has ever killed another Nigeria for insulting Jesus Christ. I am saying this even as an atheist. Prove me wrong. Not one Christian has killed another Nigerian because that Nigerian insulted Jesus.

This is why when one of my atheist friends wanted to become religious, I warned him to never consider Islam. I told him its better for him to be an armed robber or rapist than to follow that demonic practice. He followed my advice and through his practice of yoga he has embraced buddhism fully.

Look at the way the demonic murderers are bragging about their demonic deeds. People ONLY do that when they know that their community agrees with their actions. Boko Haram and ISWAP has not taught this animals a lesson. When Islam breeds demons that murder non-Muslims, these evil muslim communities in the far north defend the demons. Eventually, those same demonds will never be satisfied with killing non-Muslims. They will turn their demonic swords towards the same Muslim communities. This is the lesson of Boko Haram and ISWAP. Yet, these foolish people will never learn. Foolish things.

  • @aproko doctor, “Video of that female student murdered in Sokoto by a mob for “religious reasons” is proof that we have a long way to go in this country. Her murderers made a video about it, knowing that nothing will happen to them. They’d even be praised in certain quarters.The year is 2022.”
  • Muslims are just barbaric. Religious fanatics. I avoid them as much as possible. To avoid stories like this. I have Muslim friends but abeg I love my life. The can switch at the slightest things. What did she say to warrant death, and even if she said something why must we take laws into our hands. Hateful lot.
  • Images from the scene of the crime indicates that the young lady was stoned to death before her lifeless body was set on fire. Just reminds me of the adulteress in the Bible the Pharisees wanted to stone to death.
    2000 years later, there are still human beings that will stone a defenceless girl to death and burn her corpse.
    Note: these perpetrators are just coming out of a month long fast.
    The truth is that things like this begs a lot of question concerning the religion these perpetrators profess because check it, Sokoto state is ravaged by murderous “bandits” who kill and rape, but these same people that stone vulnerable people with relish would not exercise the same passion to rid themselves of the bandits among them. The implication is that these people view what that girl posted on Whatsapp as more grave than the killings around them. What else will make them reason this way other than indoctrination

When such things arise, it is the Muslims that should rise up to condemn the actors and go further to fish them out and ensure they are meted the harshest possible punishment otherwise the religion itself becomes complicit

Rest in Peace Deborah, and yes, nothing will happen to you by the power of the Holy ghost fire, for now you rest eternally among the Angels and Saints.

  • @letter_to_jack, “All the boys whose faces appeared in that tragic trending video from Sokoto state will have elevated status in their society as a result, they will be tagged heroes and tipped for greatness. In a few years, they will occupy powerful seats. That’s the way it works in the North. “
  • Islam breeds terrorists
  • @timiakegbejo, “A Christian mob can never burn a human being for insulting Jesus Christ. It can never happen. Yet Christianity doesn’t proclaim itself as the religion of peace.”
  • The North may never recover from the self inflicted terror they have unleashed unto themselves.

It’s a pity.

  • Wow.. religion have turned some persons into zombies.. the moment you believe there is an imaginary creature up there then you need help…

What’s the essence of serving something you created that can’t fight for itself.?

  • @sir_youngman1, “Northern Muslims are using all the possible means to de-market and extinguish the light of Islam. Northerners are making the propagation of Islam extremely difficult. How do you later preach Islam to someone who you’ve murdered his family or friend bcos of #Blasphemy?”
  • @candidlies, “What exactly is about Islam that makes Muslims so violent and murderous when their prophet is mentioned??? Is your so-called god dead that he cant fight for himself? Why was that woman murdered and it was recorded? What kind of evil is that?”
  • Northern Nigeria is the worst place on earth . We have all sorts of animals roaming free there
  • Imagine a world without Islam. Muslims will tell u that isIam means peace and Allah is all forgiving, but that is only in theory but in reality the reverse is the case
  • I attended a unity school in the north and we have a WhatsApp group chat which consists of my set. The platform turned to a mosque and the Christians retaliated and turned the platform also to a church. Both posting religious messages. Me I just kukuma exit the group because I no want wahala.
    The girl knowing the environment she was shouldn’t have posted the voice notes IMHO
  • If you are schooling in the north, you need to be very careful, don’t try correcting in anything, especially religion.
    Those people are very backward, sometimes you won’t even know you are are higher institution coz of the kind people you see around.
    If not that is difficult to secure admission in Nigeria, its not advisable to school in the North.
    RIP beautiful, Nigeria failed you.
