killing of Deborah

The alleged reason why Deborah Samuel was stoned to death and burnt by her fellow students in Sokoto state has been revealed.

Social media has been irate since the video of the shocking and disturbing incident was shared online on Thursday, May 13.

According to multiple reports, Deborah, a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, had sent a voice note to her class group chat, condemning those who send religious information on the group.

The deceased, who spoke in Hausa, is heard telling her course mates to send only useful academic materials to the group.

A Twitter user who translated the voice note, quoted Deborah as saying,

“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.”

The voice note infuriated some of her colleagues who felt she disrespected Prophet Mohammed (SAW) and threatened to deal with her.

This caused pandemonium in the school and the school authorities reportedly took Deborah to the security room for her own safety.

However, the angry students were said to have overpowered the security officials, dragged Deborah out, beat her to death before setting her ablaze.
