Deborah Samuel: Murderers must be brought to justice - European Union to Nigeria


According to the European Union (EU), the killing of Deborah Samuel in Nigeria's Sokoto State is deeply upsetting.

Mob violence claimed the life of a Shehu Shagari College of Education student on Thursday night.

The European Union urged Nigerian authorities to prosecute the perpetrators.

When the 27-member union reacted on Wednesday, they called for justice to be served.

Deborah Samuel was brutally murdered in Sokoto last week.

'Everything must be done to ensure that the murderers are brought to justice quickly and that justice is done.'" A recurrence must be avoided as well, according to a tweet from the group.

Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, a prominent Nigerian lawyer, has slammed the "watery charges" against the two suspects arrested for Deborah's murder.

As the Senior Advocate of Nigeria put it, the accusations "against hardened murderers is an insult to the parents of those who died, the people of Nigeria, and God who created Deborah" (SAN).

But the EU has urged the young to go further than simply obtaining a voter's card and participate actively in the 2023 general election.

According to the group, young Nigerians can only have a say in who governs them for the next four years if they follow their own lead.

Ambassador Samuela Isopi, the EU representative to Nigeria and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), made the call.

Isopi sees the 2023 elections as a chance for young people to have a say in how their country is run.

The diplomat gave them the task of deciding on a political office and then running for it.

There has never been a better time for young people to make a difference in elections like the ones coming up in 2023.

The youth of today are the future of tomorrow, as our leaders have always said, according to Isopi.
