A video has emerged showing the moment students beat and set Deborah Samuel ablaze in Sokoto for blasphemy.


Naijacrawl reports that a 200-level student of Home Economics at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State, northern Nigeria, has been lynched by fellow students over alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

This online news platform understands that the Christian student, identified as Deborah Samuel, allegedly shared the offensive message in a school WhatsApp group. It was learned that the blasphemous message drew the ire of the students, who overpowered school security, beat her to death, and set her body on fire.

She reportedly said before her death; “Holy Ghost Fire, nothing would happen to me. Is it by force that you guys would always be sending this religious stuff in the group? The group wasn’t created for that, but rather as a notice for when there’s a test, assignment, exams, etc., not these nonsense religious posts.”

In a swift reaction, the school was later shut down by the management to avoid an escalation of the situation.

“Following today’s early morning student rampage in the college, the College Management has resolved to close down the college indefinitely with immediate effect."

“Consequently, all students are hereby directed to vacate the college campus immediately,” the school said in a statement.
