Deborah Samuel

Deborah Samuel’s parents have described her death as tragic and heartbreaking, stating they have left her killers to God.

Deborah’s corpse was laid to rest in her birthplace of Tungan Magajiya in Niger State’s Rijau Local Government Area on Saturday evening.

Naija News recall her classmates stoned her to death and set her ablaze on Thursday for reportedly making a derogatory statement about Prophet Mohammed on a WhatsApp group.

In response to their daughter’s death, the heartbroken parents stated that they had nothing to say or do about it and that they have opted to put everything in God’s hands.

In an interview with journalists, the father, Emmanuel Garba, security personnel with the Niger State Water Works Cooperation at Tungan-Magajiya said, “we can say or do anything, except to take it easy as an act of God. We have left all to God, we have decided to take it like that

When asked who brought his deceased daughter’s body back from Sokoto State, Garba stated that he personally went and carried her remains back to be buried.

According to Garba, he paid the sum of one hundred and twenty thousand Naira to the driver out of many who refused to carry the decease because of the condition of her remains.

“I personally went and brought back the body of my daughter to enable me to bury my own child. This is because keeping her in the morgue will not return her back”

“I personally, paid the sum of N120,000 to the driver out of many that refused to convey her back home and it is because of the condition of the remains. Most drivers we approached all refused except one”.

Amid tears, the mother of the deceased stated, “I have nothing to say, I am grateful to God and for your efforts. I have given God my heart and may God strengthen me. We have nothing to say”.

“Because of what happened to me, I will no longer send my children to schools where so much money is involved. Because of her education, the education of some of her siblings suffered as it is so difficult to care for them all at the same time. And, now things are difficult for us”.
