Deborah Samuel, a student at Shehu Shagari College of Education, was murdered brutally in Sokoto, according to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN).
According to the Vice President, the President has responded to the earlier statement criticising the behaviour. I must state that this is an extremely painful and frightening event — the heinous murder of a young woman by a crowd that took the law into its own hands. I find it quite regrettable.”
Osinbajo praised Waziri Tambuwal, the governor of Sokoto State, and Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, the sultan of Sokoto, for their prompt responses to the horrible occurrence.
He stated, “The prompt response of the Sokoto State Government and Sultan of Sokoto is laudable.” I believe that their prompt response to the crisis indicated both the fury of millions of Nigerians and the determination of all parties to guarantee that the criminals are swiftly captured and convicted.”
Osinbajo stated that perpetrators of unprovoked ethnoreligious murders in the country will face the full force of the law.
According to him, there is no justification for anyone to take the law into their own hands, regardless of the provocation, because there are established procedures for redressing any wrongs committed against us.
He conveyed his deepest condolences to the deceased girl’s family. He stated, “We must extend our condolences to the family of Deborah Samuel. I cannot image how her parents, siblings, and other family members feel, not only about her death, but also about the horrifying circumstances surrounding it. We send our deepest condolences to them, as I consider this to be a truly tragic event. We pray that God may comfort them during this difficult time.”
