The Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) has made a donation through its socio-political arm, ECWA Social Movement to the family of late Deborah Samuel.
Deborah, a student of Shehu Shagari College of Education was murdered over alleged blasphemy in Sokoto state.
According to The Nation, ECWA raised the sum of N250,00 which it donated to her family as a refund for the N120,000 that the deceased parents reportedly paid to transport her body to Niger State for burial.
Deborah’s father expressed gratitude to the group, stating that the gesture left him speechless.
“I really appreciate what you did for me and my family. I don’t know what to say, I don’t have the right words, but I really appreciate you for your prayers and for all the works.
“May God bless everyone who intervened in Deborah’s issue. I really appreciate you; I don’t know what to say anymore,” he said.
ECWA Social Movement spokesperson, Rev. Julius Odofin (JP), described the incident of Deborah’s death as unfortunate, adding that it will not stop the fire ignited by her passion for the gospel.
He said: “The ECWA SOCIAL MOVEMENT, on behalf of all ECWA Worldwide, pledge to sustain the fire Deborah’s glorious exit ignited amongst us.
“Accept our condolences and don’t quit as parents in not sending the rest of the children to school. If you do, you have handed over cheap victory to Satan’s mission ‘to steal, to kill and to destroy’. God forbid. Adieu Deborah till we meet to part no more, Amen.”
