The Nigeria Police Force has promised that justice will be done concerning the murder of Deborah Samuel, a student in the state who was murdered on the grounds of blasphemy.

To this effect, the Force directed the Commissioner of Police in Sokoto State to investigate the issue and arrest those behind the murder.

This was disclosed by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, following the gruesome murder of the undergraduate on the grounds of blasphemy.

According to Adejobi, the issue that led to her death should have been handled with a civilised approach.

The Police spokesman tweeted, “Blasphemy; the killing of Deborah in Sokoto by some individuals today was uncalled for. The act was barbaric, uncivilised and criminal.

“The Commissioner of Police, Sokoto State Command has been directed to carry out thorough investigation into the matter, arrest the culprits in connection with the heinous crime and prosecute them accordingly.

“We believe that in this modern day, we should have adopted civilised approaches to address issues of this nature, not the gruesome killing of a fellow citizen. We assure the general public that justice will be done.

“May the soul of Deborah rest in peace while we commiserate with her family, friends and colleagues. Thanks.”
