Woman Jailed for Condemning Kìlling of Samuel Deborah Freed After 18 Months

Rhoda Jatau from Bauchi, who criticized the brutal killing of Samuel Deborah in Sokoto State, has regained freedom after spending eighteen months in prison.

Freshreporters News recalls that since May 2022, Jatau, a mother of five, has been held on charges of blasphemy for posting a video criticizing the lynching of Deborah, a student.

For speaking against transmitting religious materials on a WhatsApp page, Deborah, a 200-level student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, was brutally murdered in May 2022.

However, the Inter-Religious Council was credited with playing “a key role” in securing Jatau’s release and bail, although the source did not disclose the terms of her bail or the name of the court that had granted it.
