The remains of late Deborah Samuel, a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto State, have been laid to rest in her hometown, Tungan Magajiya in Rijau Local Government Area of Niger State today amidst controversy.
The 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto state, was b**ten and stoned to d**th over allegations that she made a comment in her school’s WhatsApp Group platform which her Muslim colleagues considered to be blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed (SAW).
Reacting, the Pastor of the family in charge of 1st ECWA in Tunga Magajiya, Pastor Emmanuel Maaji explained that the family are insisting that their daughter be buried today as against the state government’s position to wait until it completes its own arrangement.
According to him, the parents are not happy with the way and matter the government is handling the issue.
The cleric said the body of the deceased was transported back home in a chartered bus and not a government vehicle.
The government had asked the family to deposit the deceased in the mortuary until burial arrangements are concluded.
However, the parents disagreed with the government’s position, while insisting that their daughter’s body would be buried today.
Her remains were laid to rest in her hometown, Tungan Magajiya in Rijau LGA area of Niger State, May Her Gentle soul RIP, 💔🙏
