Deborah Samuel: How DSS Was Overpowered By Mob — Governor Tambuwal

The governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, has revealed more details on the killing of Deborah Samuel, the 200-level student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education in the state.

According to Tambuwal, operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) tried to save the late student but could not because they were overpowered by the irate mob.

The governor made the disclosure while addressing newsmen on Friday when he visited Delta State as part of his 2023 presidential campaign.

"Contrary possibly to what you’re thinking, the security agencies, particularly the DSS, were able to get to the school on time and were actually able to get Deborah rescued from the mob initially.

"As they were mobilising forces from the military barracks, the police command, the mob was growing. As we speak, one of the DSS agents that attempted to save her life is in the hospital with a broken head and the other one had a broken hand.

“They were actually overpowered. It’s not as if she was left on her own.

"There was rescue by the DSS and they were around where she was locked into a room because they tried to really save her, but unfortunately they were overpowered", Tambuwal said.
