Deborah Samuel murder has triggered a call by Nigerians asking for the sack of Sterling Bank MD Abubakar Suleiman
iexclusivenews had reported earlier that Deborah Samuel, a 200 Level student of Home Economics. At Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State, northern Nigeria. Has been lynched by fellow students over alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad on Thursday, May 12, 2022.
This online news outlet understands that the Christian student, identified as Deborah Samuel, allegedly shared the offensive message in a school Whatsapp group.
It was learnt, that the blasphemous message drew the ire of the students, who overpowered school security, beat her to death, and set the body on fire.
Deborah Yakubu told her classmates not to share religious items on the class WhatsApp group chat, according to the audio obtained by iexclusivenews Nigeria.
She had said before her death; “Holy ghost fire, nothing would happen to me. Is it by force you guys would always be sending this religious stuff in the group.
The group wasn’t created for that, but rather as a notice for when there’s a test, assignment, exams, etc, not these nonsense Religious posts.”

The school was eventually shut down by management in an effort to prevent the situation from escalating.
“In light of today’s early morning student rampage in the College, the College Management has decided to close the College indefinitely and with immediate effect.”
“Consequently, all students are hereby directed to vacate the College campus immediately,” the school said in a statement.
The assassination of Deborah Samuel has sparked debate across social media platforms.
With many Netizens decrying Sterling Bank’s corporate rascality and open disregard for the Christian race.
While under the supervision of a Muslim MD/CEO, Abubakar Suleiman, according to ENigeria Newspaper.
Following the death of Deborah Samuel, who was slain and set ablaze in Sokoto Thursday, May 12, 2022.
Nigerians turned to Twitter to demand that Sterling Bank MD Abubakar Suleiman be fired immediately.
Alternatively, as some sources claim, Sterling Bank equated Agege Bread to Jesus in its Easter 2022 statement.
In fact, the bank wrote “Like Agege Bread, He Rose,” an allusion to both Jesus’ historical resurrection and Agege Bread’s rise.
When the incident that resulted in Deborah Samuel’s death occurred on Thursday afternoon.
The tension created by the Abubakar Suleiman-led Sterling Bank “Agege Bread” advertisement had not completely subsided.
And now aggrieved Christian members have resurrected calls for the Sterling Bank Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer to be fired.
The majority of Christians are undoubtedly unhappy, and no one knows how far they will go to vent their dissatisfaction.
Will Abubakar Suleiman completely dodge the Christian axe throughout the story? Time will tell, perhaps.
However, iexclusivenews Nigeria reports the reactions of some angry Nigerians calling for the sacking of Abubakar Suleiman below
Sterling Bank led by Abubakar Suleiman compared Jesus Christ to "Agege Bread" in its Easter message last month and no Christians blinked an eye.
Now, imagine a Christian owned that bank then goes ahead to compare Muhammed to Agege Bread.💀

Watching the video of Deborah's brutal murder this morning brought tears to my eyes. What did she say to warrant her being killed in such a gruesome manner?
I can't help wonder what would've happened to Sterling bank branches if that Agege Bread Ad was about Mohammed & not Jesus pic.twitter.com/00EvaK4Iup

No one was killed as a result of this. Sterling bank's CEO was forgiven. Yet some so-called youths went as far as taking their own course mate's life. How would you feel knowing that you're responsible for the death of someone that spent months running around in school with you? pic.twitter.com/vzUN0ypFcx
