Deborah Samuel: Mother Unconscious as Remains Arrives Niger

Deborah Samuel, a student at Sokoto’s Shehu Shagari College of Education who was burned to death on Thursday for alleged blasphemy, has arrived at Tunga Magajiya in Niger State’s Rijau local government area.

Deborah’s mother has been unconscious since hearing of her death, according to The Nation, while her father has been distraught.

The family is currently meeting to discuss the burial arrangements.

The body was on its way to Niger State when the Sokoto State Official requested that it be returned since it had become government property.

Her family, however, insisted that she be buried today.

Pastor Emmanuel Maaji, who is in charge of the 1st ECWA in Tunga Magajiya, verified to a reporter that the family wants her buried on Saturday.

He stated that the family is dissatisfied with the government’s handling of the situation with kid gloves.

He said Deborah’s body was transported on a hired bus and that the driver returned to Sokoto shortly after dropping the body off.

Deborah had been staying with family members in Sokoto since she was in primary school, he said, regretting her death.

“The government just contacted to say that the family should not have taken the body without alerting them.” They advised against burying.

“The government only called and said that it is not right for the family to take the body like that without informing them. They said that they shouldn’t bury the body as the body is for the government and not for the family. They asked them to put the body in the mortuary,” Maaji stated.

Deborah’s father’s sibling said he would speak with The Nation later because they are still preparing the burial and conducting meetings.

Reverend Danjuma Doma, the Rijau Local Government Area CAN Coordinator, stated that the family and church were preparing for the burial.

“We’re getting ready to bury him.” She will be laid to rest today. We’re all here to assist the family. We’ll keep you informed.
