Late Deborah Samuel

The remains of a 200-level female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education Sokoto, Deborah Samuel, burnt to death last Thursday over alleged blasphemy, have been laid to rest in Niger State.

She was buried in her hometown,Tunga Magajiya, in Rijau local government area of the Sate Saturday evening.

Deborah was buried around 6:30pm at the Christian cemetery in Tunga Magaiya.

Her family remained adamant on proceeding with the exercise despite protest by youths of Tunga Magaiya who felt Sokoto Government should have been responsible for her burial.


Her uncle, who is the Pastor of ECWA in Tunga Magajiya, Emmanuel Maaji, led the prayers at the cemetery before she was lowered to mother earth.

May her soul rest in perfect peace.
