Deborah was accused of blaspheming Islam’s Prophet Muhammad and was subsequently set ablaze by her male Muslim coursemates and other Islamic fanatics who joined in the lynching.
Lunch time in their new abode
This development drew worldwide outrage and has since touched the heart of concerned Nigerians who frowned at the brutal event.
Following Deborah’s gruesome murder, her parents had vowed never to allow any of their children go to school again. But today, they have an unprecedented helping hand and the courage to live happy again.
A Christian clergy and the General Overseer of Omega Power Ministries, Chibuzor Chinyere, who said he was bitter after hearing Deborah’s parents speak of their other children’s future due to their daughter’s horror killing, made a promise to affect their life.
In fulfilment of his promises, Apostle Chinyere invited Mr Samuel Yakubu to Port Harcourt and gift them a furnished apartment and a car for Uber business.
