A good percentage of Nigerians are unhappy with gruesome murder of a female student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto State, Deborah Samuel, who was stoned to death and set ablaze by students of the college for alleged blasphemy. They have signed an online petition to seek justice for Deborah who was killed for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

“Send us important information. This group was not created for you to send useless information. It was created for you to send past questions if there is a test or an assignment. It is not for you to send useless information. Which prophet?” the late Deborah was quoted to have stated this in a voice note she shared to the WhatsApp group.
The petition initiated by a journalist, Dotun Olawoye, called on the government and other relevant stakeholders to ensure justice is served in the matter.

Olawoye said, “Deborah, a student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education in‪ Sokoto State, was beaten and burnt to death by her colleagues for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad (SAW). The incident happened on Thursday morning.
“She was burnt to death by Muslim students who dragged her out of her hostel.

In a related development,  sometime in March 2021, some angry youths backed by leaders in Sade community in the Darazo Local Government Area of Bauchi State burnt a man identified as Talle Mai Ruwa, to death for allegedly insulting Prophet Muhammad.
“Mai Ruwa was reportedly dragged away from his house on Tuesday in the presence of his mother and burnt to death in the middle of the community. If we don’t get justice for Deborah, we’ll lose more people to this. #JusticeForDeborah.”
