Muslim Mob Reportedly Stones to Death, Burns Deborah Over False Blasphemy Claim

Deborah Samuel, a young woman in Nigeria was reportedly stoned to death and her body beaten and burned after she was falsely accused of insulting the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

Deborah Emmanuel Yakubu, a Shehu Shagari College of Education student in Sokoto, Nigeria, was brutally murdered May 12. The violent attack was purportedly filmed and shared on social media.

This deadly attack are still being pieced together, said Yakubu, a Christian, was the head of a Christian fellowship organization at the university.

She came under fire and was later killed over comments purportedly made on WhatsApp, a messaging app.

“There was some kind of argument in the WhatsApp group about religion. Some people say she praised Jesus for something, other people say she asked some other people to stop talking about religion so much.

Other reports claim she was falsely accused of insulting Muhammad after refusing to date a Muslim, or that she said on WhatsApp that Christians at Shehu Shagari College of Education were discriminated against and Muslims favored.

An additional assertion was that she thanked Jesus after passing tests and refused to retract her statement of gratitude.

Regardless of Yakubu’s purported comments or the causal details, she was attacked the next day by young Muslims who were outraged and violently decided to end her life.

“The next day some young Muslim students went to her hostel and grabbed her and beat her to death and then burned her body,” he said. The videos are online, you can see her body being burned, and you can see the faces of the people who did it, and you can hear them shouting ‘Allahu Akbar.’ They are apparently not afraid at all of being punished for this.

Nigeria is one of the biggest Christian countries in the world. The Gospel is on fire in Nigeria. The Gospel is spreading, churches are growing. This is the future of Christianity. Precisely where the church is having the biggest growth, the devil is attacking the most ferociously.

Open Doors USA’s 2022 World Watch List ranks Nigeria the seventh most dangerous place in the world to live as a Christian.

Persecution in northern Nigeria is, simply put, brutally violent,” the Open Doors USA report reads. “In much of northern Nigeria, Christians live their lives under the constant threat of attack from Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), Fulani militants and criminals who kidnap and murder with few consequences.”

Police reportedly shut down Shehu Shagari College of Education after the attack and arrested two students. Authorities purportedly pledge to find all those responsible for the brutal killing.
