One of the most controversial recent stories on the internet is the report of how a Christian student was burnt to death in Sokoto for blasphemy. A lot has been going on since the unfortunate incident both within and outside the country. According to a new report getting to us, Deborah Samuel’s family recently got a Toyota car and a house from a pastor as support. The car gift and a mini estate were reportedly donated by the Omega Power Ministry to Mr Garba Emmanuel, the father of the late Deborah Samuel. It was reported that Chibuzor Chinyere, who is the General Overseer of OPM church, presented these gifts to the grieving family. The father of the deceased is a security guard that works with the Niger State Water and Sanitation office.

“In fulfilment of my earlier promise and in honour of the late Deborah Samuel, I on behalf of the Omega Power Ministry relocated and donated a 14-flats-mini estate and a Corolla car, for Uber business, to her family in Port Harcourt.
“The estate was registered in their name immediately.
“May God take all glory and honour. Amen!”

Late Deborah Samuel
Deborah, a 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, lost her life after she was stoned and burnt right inside the campus for alleged blasphemy of Prophet Muhammad. Her death was made worse after some of the killers identified themselves in the videos that were shared online. A lot of Nigerians called for the prosecution of these individuals who partook in the lynching of the innocent young lady. Following the outrage, the governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal had to impose a curfew on the state to reduce the violence and prevent reprisal attacks. While reacting to the murder of their eldest child, Deborah's mother vowed not to send her remaining seven children to school in the north so as not to experience such a barbaric act.
