KanyiDaily had reported how Deborah was beaten and burnt to death by her Muslim colleagues over alleged blasphemous remarks considered to be an insult to Prophet Mohammed.
A source said trouble started on Thursday morning when the late Christian student was asked by her colleagues how she managed to pass her exams.
Deborah was said to have attributed her academic excellence to Jesus and this angered her colleagues who asked her to withdraw her statement — to which she refused.
The source said the mob attacked her and then set her body ablaze after overpowering the school security personnel who tried to intervene in the matter.
A gory image and video clip of the incident sparked outrage on social media with many Nigerians calling on authorities to immediately bring the killers to book.
Anas Sani Warns Christians
Reacting to the outrage on his social media page, Sani insisted that the Muslim mob justifiably murdered Ms Samuel because she was reckless with her tongue.
Sani, who is a personal assistant to the Sokoto finance commissioner, also warned that more Christians would be killed for disrespecting Prophet Muhammad.
He wrote, “Muslims don’t take insults against beloved prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in whatever form. The earlier our Christian brothers and sisters understand this, the better for all of us. May the recklessness of our tongues never drive us to (an) early grave.”
Meanwhile, Sokoto State Police Command has announced that its operatives have arrested two suspects involved in the killing of Deborah Samuel.
