Deborah Samuel, a female student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, was killed and her body burned today for an unknown reason.
Deborah had posted a voice note on her class Whatsapp group, according to Twitter users, in which she challenged her colleagues who were publishing religious content there.
Deborah was cited as saying the following in Hausa, according to a Twitter user who did the translation:
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.
