The pregnant woman, Harira Jubril reportedly murdered by the Indigenous People of Biafra alongside her four children has been buried in Anambra State.
The woman and her kids were shot dead at Isulo, Orumba North Local Government Area of the state, on Sunday.
The leader of the Hausa Community in Orunba South of Anambra, Sarki Kabiru Bakari, while speaking on the development with Daily Trust said the corpses of the victims were recovered on Tuesday evening.
According to Bakari, the plan to take the corpses to their hometown in Adamawa was cancelled because the corpses were not taken care of in the mortuary.
He added that the corpses could not withstand the travel to the North.
Bakari said, “We have now decided to bury them in Awka Wednesday (today). The mortuary attendant did not treat the corpses, no preservation measure was done; hence we cannot travel with the corpses as they have already started decomposing. We have no other option than to take them to Awka and bury them there.”
He noted that security personnel had been deployed in the area and that the Anambra State police commissioner has visited them and assured them of swinging into action.
Bakari added, “But after we bury the victims, we will all relocate to our hometown in the North; we are no longer safe here. The husband of the woman will also relocate back to Adamawa as soon as he has buried his family; he is working here as a security guard.”
