Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere, the General Overseas of Omega Power Ministries (OPM) Church said he is relocating the family of Deborah Samuel, who was killed and burnt in Sokoto state to Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Deborah, a 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, was stoned and burnt on the school campus last Thursday for allegedly blaspheming Prophet Muhammad.
Her killing had sparked outrage across the country with many calling for the swift prosecution of two suspects arrested in connection with the crime while some Muslim youths also demanded the release of the suspects last Saturday.
The protesters rioted, vandalised and burnt market stalls, churches and structures perceived to belong to Christians.
In reaction, Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal subsequently imposed a curfew on the state to stem the violence that broke out.
Yesterday, Sunday, Deborah’s mother, Aileri Emmanuel, had said that she would never send her remaining seven children to school because of the barbaric murder of her daughter.
With tears in her eyes, Emmanuel said, “I have no demands; I don’t want anything but one thing I know is that my children will never go to school again.”
The deceased’s father, Garba Emmanuel, who is a security guard with the Niger State Water and Sanitation, also lamented that he used his whole savings to send his eldest child (Deborah) to school.
Perhaps touched by the plight of the family, Apostle Chinyere in a facebook post on monday, promised them a better life.
He has also offered them accommodation in one of the OPM free estates where they will never pay rent forever.
In addition to that, Chinyere said all their children will be given automatic scholarships in OPM Free schools.
He also promised to get the father a job and open a shop for the mother.
The cleric wrote, “I just watched a video clip where the parents of Deborah Samuel said they will not be sending their children to school again. God forbid.
“Anyone with their contacts should inform them immediately that I Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere the General Overseas of OPM Church is relocating them to Port Harcourt.

“All their children are given automatic scholarships in OPM Free schools.
