The folks what featured in the viral video of Deborah Samuel‘s murder have been proclaimed wanted for culpable homicide by Sokoto police in Nigeria.

“The Prime suspects that claimed responsibility for the murder of Deborah Samuel in the viral video were declared wanted,” Abubakar said.

He urged members of the public to help the police by reporting any information they have on the suspects to the command or any security organization in their jurisdiction.

“The command has already deployed all its intelligence and is on the lookout for the suspects,” he added, assuring that the Sokoto Police Command is determined to apprehending the culprits.

Blasphemy Accusation

Deborah was assassinated by a mob on Thursday last week after being suspected of blasphemy.

The heinous murder aroused widespread indignation and condemnation, prompting the Sokoto State administration to close the school.

The police reported the arrest of two suspects as the news spread and videos of the murder went viral.

The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, and the Catholic Bishop of the Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Kukah, were among those who condemned the massacre.

The situation in the state devolved on Saturday amid calls for justice as an angry mob attacked the Holy Family Cathedral and another Catholic Church building in the state, demanding the release of those jailed.

The state administration responded by imposing a 24-hour curfew on the state.

On Monday, the curfew was lifted, and the two arrested suspects were arraigned the same day. Both of them were remanded in jail.

Deborah’s bones were interred over the weekend in her hometown of Tunga Magajiya in the Rijau Local Government Area of Niger State.
