Courts orders remand of suspects arrested over Deborah Samuel’s murder

The two suspects detained in connection with the murder of Deborah Samuel, a 200-level student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, have been arraigned by men from the Sokoto state police command.

Deborah was killed by her classmates, who accused her of making a derogatory remark about Prophet Mohammed in their class Whatsapp group.

Bilyaminu Aliyu and Aminu Hukunchi, both students at the college, were charged and arraigned in a magistrate's court in the state.

Inspector Khalil Musa, the police prosecutor, sought the court to set a new date after the accused pleaded not guilty to the accusations.

However, the defense attorneys, led by Professor Mansur Ibrahim, who did not object to the application, pleaded with the court to grant the defendants bail, citing sections 157, 161(a,f), and 164 of the Sokoto state administration of criminal justice law, as well as section 36(5) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended.

The court, on the other hand, postponed the application's decision to a later date that would be conveyed to the lawyers. As a result, the accused were ordered to be held at the Sokoto Correctional Centre.
