Deborah Samuel's Parents Finally Speak On Daughter's Demise

Late Deborah Samuel's parents have broken their silence after the untimely demise of their daughter, calling her death sad and painful.

The late student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education was laid to rest in her hometown, Tungan Magajiya in the Rijau Local Government Area of Niger State Saturday evening.

Speaking on her passing, the bereaved parents stated that they had nothing to say or do about their daughter's death as they have decided to leave everything in God's hands.

Deborah's father, Emmanuel Garba, a security worker with the Niger State Water Works Cooperation at Tungan-Magajiya, who spoke with Daily Post said: "We can say or do anything, except to take it easy as an act of God. We have left all to God, we have decided to take it like that."

Garga shared that he personally went to Sokoto State and brought back his daughter's remains to be buried.

"I personally went and brought back the body of my daughter to enable me to bury my own child. This is because keeping her in the morgue will not return her back.

"When I got there, I met government officials and made them understand the need to allow me to take her back home and they agreed with me.

"When we got to the morgue, those in charge asked me to sign the necessary documents and I did. They released the corpse to me.

"I personally, paid the sum of N120,000 to the driver out of many that refused to convey her back home and it is because of the condition of the remains. Most drivers we approached all refused except one.

"The government wanted me to leave the remains, when they called me, I said no, they should allow me to please, bury my daughter", he said.

Alheri Emmanuel, the mother of the deceased, disclosed that Deborah was the second of seven children and that it was sad to have lost her at such a young age as they were relying on to help support them in the future.

"I have nothing to say, I am grateful to God and for your efforts. I have given God my heart and may God strengthen me. We have nothing to say.

"Because of what happened to me, I will no longer send my children to schools where so much money is involved.

"Because of her education, the education of some of her siblings suffered as it is so difficult to care for them all at the same time. And, now things are difficult for us”, the grieving mother stated amid tears.
