Blasphemy - Deborah Samuels Parents Speak On Her Painful Exit

The parents of the late Deborah Samuel of Shagari College of Education Sokoto, Sokoto State have described the death of their daughter as sad and painful, saying they have left her killers to God.








Deborah was stoned to death and set ablaze on Thursday by her fellow students for allegedly making a blasphemous statement on a WhatsApp group against Prophet Mohammed.

Her remains of Deborah were laid to rest in her hometown, Tungan Magajiya in Rijau Local Government Area of Niger State on Saturday evening.


The bereaved parents said they have nothing to say or do regarding the loss of their child, but have decided to leave everything in the hands of God.

Speaking with Daily Post, the father, Mr. Emmanuel Garba, a security personnel with the Niger State Water Works Cooperation at Tungan-Magajiya said, “we can’t 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”.


On who brought back the body of his deceased daughter from Sokoto State, the father explained that he personally went and brought back her remains to be buried.

“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.

“When I got there, I met government officials and made them understand the need to allow me take her back home and they agreed with me. When we got to the morgue, those in charge asked me to sign the necessary documents and I did. They released the corpse to me.”


On who paid for the transportation, Garba, “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.”

Confirming the call by the Sokoto State Government that the body of his daughter should not be returned home, the father of the deceased stated, “the government wanted me to leave the remains, when they called me, I said no, they should allow me to please, bury my daughter.”

Also, the mother, Mrs. Alheri Emmanuel, said that Deborah was the second of seven children, adding that it’s so sad to have lost her at such a young age, whom they were relying on to help support them in the future.

On her medical condition, the mother of the deceased explained that she is stable now and discharged from the hospital, where she was admitted upon hearing the news of the gruesome murder of her daughter.

In Tears, Mrs. Alheri 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”.

Also, her elder brother, Nakaka Garba, when asked for his reaction, he simply stated, “I have nothing to say, we are pained by what happened, but we have left all to God.”

On why their daughter answered Deborah ‘Samuel’ instead of ‘Garba’, the father further added, “she has been living with my brother since she was in primary school and had been using the name”.





* The pain in the Woman's eyes made me teary. May God give them both the strength to carry on.

  2. Very painful to read. Some people just sit down and all they think about is how to cause harm to people, take lives they didn’t create.
    The government should compensate this family handsomely.
    It will never be well with all those that cut short Deborah’s life and those that directly and indirectly supported it.

    3. @Eesah,u should know I know them very well,I was born and raised here,I live here and I can categorically tell u ur Religion teaches u to kill non Muslims and that it ok to kill for Allah and prophet Muhammad,also know that I can read the Qur'an and I have listened to some of ur mallams teaches..
      Northerns can be one of ur best friends and nice, peaceful until it comes to their religion then u know that ,that person u consider as a friend is nothing but a demon which will not stop until u are killed..
      Oh please, peaceful and tolerant?we avoid them, that's how we live here,we buy and sell to them but never befriend them.. everyone just stay on there lay to be alive

    8. Someone compared Jesus to bread the other day and no life was lost. People were convinced their God is powerful enough to fight for himself.

      Today, all we are hearing is "I disagree with jungle justice but..." which means you're likely to have participated if you were there and even inwardly support the act. Most unfortunate.

      Even adherents of the African traditional religion haven't hurt anyone for all the bad press they get in the news and movies so which is the true religion of peace? Those who claim without off and utter subtle threats or those who recognize God as powerful enough to fight good own battles?

      I am grateful that all the Muslims I know aren't like you. They are even more eager to condemn such actions and are not competing with God, knowing he can defend himself.

  18. Deborah Yakubu. Emmanuel Garba. A strong evidence of her being from Niger State. My dear state, where even in a nuclear family, you find both Christians and Muslims. Likewise,extended families. If Deborah had uttered the so called blasphemous statement in Niger State, chances are nobody will even take note of the words, except maybe in kontagora(they say they are from Sudan )or suleja(they say they are from Zaria) those ones are fanatical extremists. Unfortunately, those ones who dare not bring their terrorist behavior to the fore in Niger State of old have been empowered by "dead Kure" who brought Sharia to the state to score cheap political points.
    Chances are Deborah have Muslim relatives who they may have been exchanging such words without any one feeling aggrieved.
    Even in my family, we do it and we also follow each other to church and mosque.
    Who can stop the heart from breaking?
    Rest in perfect peace Deborah. May your unfortunate demise move the host of heaven to take a decision on Nigeria.

    May God console and comfort them in this trying period and may her killers never know what peace is in this life and beyond., they too will cry over their own seed as they made this parent do.

  20. And yet these people call our Jesus a mere prophet. Is that not blasphemy?

  21. Deborah's murder was wrong and a sad one but I'll always point out the bigotry and double standards in most of ya'll. Most of you have made 100s of posts condemning the Brutal Murder of Deborah but you've never for once condemned her blasphemy. Meaning it was okay for her to blaspheme the prophet of Islam. You support blasphemy against the Prophet and If given the chance most of ya'll will do it and encourage doing it. So you blaspheme and some Muslims react overzealously and you come online blaming all Muslims. Is it hard for ya'll to respect other people's Prophets the way they do yours? You can never see a Muslim doing that rubbish, but you've made it a habbit to inslut what Muslims hold dearest to trigger them and when a Deborah incident occurs, you come online to say Muslims are troublesome. Religion of peace etc 😑😑

BUT EVERYONE SHOULD RESPECT EACH OTHER'S RELIGION AND DIETYS FOR PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE. YOU CAN'T EVEN GO TO ABA AND INSULT NNAMDI COWNU A KNOWN TERRORIST DUE TO HOW THEY REGARD HIM THERE, SO WHY WOULD ANYONE WHO LOVES PEACE GO TO SOKOTO AND INSULT THE PROPHET PBUH AND MOST OF YA'LL ARE IN TACTIC SUPPORT AND INDIRECTLY ???? AND YOU DON'T WANT ME TO TALK. I MUST POINT OUT THE DOUBLE STANDARDS

    5. @Eesah.... Do you know that Muslims are the ones who carry out blasphemy the most...? How can you refer to Jesus as a prophet? Jesus is the Son God to Christians and not a prophet. There was also an image on Tweeter were a Muslim man used an alleged image of Jesus siting on a throne as an object of mockery, Christians didn't turn the country upside down neither did they try to defend Jesus. By the way, which part of the holy book do you have knowledge of? The Quran did not in any way state that Muslims should perpetuate jungle justice.

      Delete
    6. Which double standards? What do you mean no Muslim would blaspheme against Christians? Jesus is God and yet you all say Jesus is a prophet. What exactly did Deborah say against your prophet that is worse than you calling our God a mere prophet?

    7. Eesah, how come the peaceful Muslims, who u will have us blv are more in number, are hardly ever seen stopping the extremists from their jungle justice, in matters such as this?

      Indeed, ppl shd learn to refrain from making inciting comments but I don't see how any peaceful or well meaning religion can be condoning the sort of treatment meted out to that girl. Doesn't ur religion define appropriate channels to go through, in such matters?

    10. Eeasah, you people have been claiming blasphemy yet none of you have told us the blasphemous thing she said. I am asking you now, WHAT DID SHE SAY??
      And if you truly believe a human being like you deserves to die just because of words uttered, then you are pure evil! You and the rest of the muslims who believe a whole human should cease to exist because of mere words are worse than animals! The true arnè as u love to call us.
      From the perspective of a christian, saying Jesus was a mere prophet is the greatest blasphemy. But how many of you have been killed when u say so? COME & ANSWER!
      You are your lots are pure darkness. You know it. Your religion is a blood thirsty one. All over the world, terrorists kill scores in the name of your god. IS IT A LIE?? Continue justifying rubbish. You too will die! You will realise there are no 72 virgins awaiting you. You will realise that a mere man created the rubbish u lots kill others for, and that God is ONE and all He has created are loved by Him and does NOT need you to fight, kill, hate or maim for Him. You will discover your stupidity but it wi be too late because you will be suffering for the evil u supported while on this realm. All will stand before judgement where there is no religion, no Mohammed, no blasphemy. Just deeds!

      Vengeance is of God. The true living God fights his Children’s battle and not the other way round.

  26. Over 6 Mosques have been burnt and over 90 Muslims killed in Southeast from last year October 2020 after Endsars till right about now, did ya'll talk about that? Every life matters!!!

    What about the murder of that Fulani Family of 7 in Oyi, Anambra State last year? How many of you guys came here to condemn it or trend hashtags for thier justice???

    The hypocrisy of condemning the murder of Deborah Yakubu in Sokoto for blasphemy but keeping silent on the daily murder of Notherners/Muslims in Southeast daily will never sit well with me. The tactic/stylish support of Deborah's crime of blasphemy by most of ya'll here will never sit well with us!!! You perpetrate all these daily in Nigeria and still have the guts to come here screaming that Muslims are wicked etc. Trying to blame the victims (Muslims) cause we don't speak. Muslims are actually the victims in all these!!!

      We are still asking you to point us to the blasphemy that Deborah committed, is that so hard to do?

    6. Give us the stats of since 1960 so we can know who has been killed the most. Is there any southerner on this blog including jokers like Teejay who will support the killings with words like probably and maybe the way you are doing? How many Muslims have been killed in Nigeria for the blasphemy of calling the God of the Christians a prophet? How many have been killed for saying God has no son? Is God so weak they he can't even defend himself? What is God's response/ reward to those who defend him?

      This guy, you are brainwashed, hateful and confused.

  33. Buhari blasphemes by calling Jesus Christ a prophet.

    According to Rev. Yinka Yusuf ‘'I was listening to the television two days ago and our dear president, President Buhari said something. He said our religion respects and believes in all prophets, even Jesus Christ. That is blaspheming. Calling Jesus Christ a prophet is blasphemy because Jesus is not a prophet...but that's the problem with religion.

    If Blasphemy is calling God who he is not, Jesus from the day he was on earth till today, people are still calling him who he is not.

    Jesus is not a prophet, he is too big to be a prophet. Never once did he call himself a prophet. It was the Jews that called him a prophet. He never called him prophet because he is not a prophet. A prophet is a messenger. Who will he be a messenger to? He is the message. How can the message become a messenger?''
