A fresh call by Nigerians for the sack of Sterling Bank MD Abubakar Suleiman after Deborah’s murder has emerged.
The killing of Deborah Samuel has become a subject of discussion across social media platforms with many Netizens already calling to heart the corporate rascality and outright disrespect of the Christian race exhibited by Sterling Bank under the watch of a Muslim MD/CEO, Abubakar Suleiman, ENigeria Newspaper reports.
Reacting to the ugly incident in Sokoto State, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to call for the immediate sacking of Sterling Bank MD, Abubakar Suleiman, following the killing Deborah Samuel, a young woman in her twenties, who was murdered and set ablaze in Sokoto on Thursday, May 12, 2022.
Alternatively, Sterling Bank compared Agege Bread to Jesus in its Easter 2022 message, as some reports suggest. The bank actually wrote “Like Agege Bread, He Rose,” a reference to Jesus’ historical resurrection and the rising of Agege Bread.
When the incident that resulted in the death of Deborah Samuel occurred on Thursday afternoon, the tension caused by the Abubakar Suleiman-led Sterling Bank “Agege Bread” advertisement has yet to die down completely, and now aggrieved members of the Christian fold have resurrected calls for the sacking of the Sterling Bank Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer.
Without a doubt, the majority of Christians are unhappy, and no one knows how far they will go to express their discontent. Would Abubakar Suleiman entirely avoid the Christian axe during the entire drama? Perhaps only time will tell.
No one was killed as a result of this. Sterling bank's CEO was forgiven. Yet some so-called youths went as far as taking their own course mate's life. How would you feel knowing that you're responsible for the death of someone that spent months running around in school with you? pic.twitter.com/vzUN0ypFcx

The reason religious intolerance exists in Norther Nig is because perpetrators of violence on religious grounds know nothing will happen. This was Sterling Bank mocking the resurrection of Christ on Easter Day. Imagine this degree of mockery, had Islam being on the receiving end pic.twitter.com/xweIeY9fq1

Islamic Group, MURIC compared Buhari with Jesus.
Sterling bank likened Jesus to agege bread. All these & more yet heaven did not fall.
The barbaric killing of another in Sokoto is the highest form of inhumanity! No God will sanction that.

1. As a Christian each and everyone should speak out this isn't polite it is inappropriate imbalance and absurd. CAN and Christian religion leaders shouldn't take this levity we must condemn and stand against this barbaric act.

When Elrufai insulted Jesus, did we kill him?

Watching the video of Deborah's brutal murder this morning brought tears to my eyes. What did she say to warrant her being killed in such a gruesome manner?
I can't help wonder what would've happened to Sterling bank branches if that Agege Bread Ad was about Mohammed & not Jesus pic.twitter.com/00EvaK4Iup
