Deborah Samuel’s Killers Should be Brought To Book

Deborah Samuel’s Killers Should be Brought To Book

By Bishop Kenneth Obi.

Miss Deborah Samuel, a 200-level student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, was brutally murdered by a mob for spurious religious reasons, demonstrating how far Nigeria has fallen. The killers’ videotaping of themselves exemplifies the country’s culture of impunity. They understand that the government is far too criminally negligent to intervene. We are in a state of failure. Let us stop pretending otherwise.

We have lost our humanity in Nigeria, and the value of human life no longer means anything to us.

Deborah’s death highlights the importance of religious leaders educating their followers about the value of human life and religious tolerance. Such killings, as in the case of Deborah, should never be allowed to fester in any region of Nigeria, especially since that many young people have transformed themselves into solicitors and juries, dispensing lethal punishment on a whim and against anyone they want without recourse to the law.

Almost all known religions in Nigeria condemn inhuman acts and oppose the arbitrary slaughter of human beings. Our constitution, on the other hand, outlaws it.

As a result, I am saddened by the loss of young Deborah and condemn her murder in its entirety, and I desire to urge an end to such cruel activities.

While consoling the deceased’s family over the heinous murder of their sister and daughter, I urged law enforcement agencies especially the Governor of Sokoto State and the Police Inspector General of Nigeria to do all necessary to bring the perpetrators to justice as soon as possible.
