Here are photos of the parents of Deborah Samuel, the female student who was gruesomely murdered on Thursday, May 12, over allegations that she made a comment on her school’s WhatsApp platform which her Muslim colleagues considered to have blasphemed Prophet Mohammed (SAW).
The parents looked so sad in the photos shared online.
The parents of slain Sokoto student, Deborah Yakubu, have revealed that they have handed everything over to God.
Emmanuel Garba and Alheri Emmanuel while speaking with Daily Post 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.”
The deceased was buried on Saturday in her hometown in Niger State.
Deborah Samuel: Prophet Muhammad didn’t kill anyone for insulting him – Sheikh Gumi
Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi has joined the conversation of death for blasphemy, saying that Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (SAW), did not at anytime kill anyone despite the fact that he was insulted severally.
Gumi said this while conducting a religious teaching class in his Kaduna Juma’at mosque, according to reports.
As per Premium Times, in a video clip obtained and translated by PRNigeria, Gumi said the prophet’s refusal to avenge the insults non-Muslims were raining on him while he was alive, was because he did not want to be regarded or tagged a killer.
His statement was a reaction to the recent lynching of Deborah Samuel, a female Christian student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, over alleged blasphemy.
He said: “Anyone who kills a non-Muslim who they have agreed to live peacefully with, will not smell the fragrance of Paradise for 40 years.
“If we think by killing Deborah, people who are not of the same faith with us will stop insulting our prophet, then we are in delusion,” he concluded.
