I’m Now Left With Nobody -- Husband Of Woman Killed With 4 Kids in Anambra Speaks


Jubril Ahmed, the husband of the pregnant mother who was killed along with her four children in Anambra, said he is still traumatized.

When Jubril, a security guard in Anambra State, was assassinated, his wife was nine months pregnant and the family was expecting a new baby within the week.

"They were returning home after she visited her sister in a neighbouring town," he explained. The gunman targeted her and the four children because they were all wearing hijabs.

"As I’m talking to you, I’m in the process of recovering their corpses. The police have given me some documents which I will use to collect the corpses. 

"I’m in the mortuary now, they are demanding N30, 000 from me before they will release the corpses of my family.

"My hope is to take the corpses to Ganye Local Government Area in Adamawa State and bury them because the cemetery the Arewa community is using here is already filled.

Harira Jibril, 32, was Jibril's late wife, and Fatima, 9, Khadijah, 7, Hadiza, 5, and Zaituna, 2, were Jibril's four children.

"I'm now alone; they've exterminated my entire family." "I am so frightened and traumatized that the government must intervene," Jibril added.

Sarki Kabiru Bakari, the leader of the Hausa Community in Orunba South, informed Daily Trust that the victims' bodies were later discovered Tuesday evening.

He, however, said the plans to take them to their hometown in Adamawa for burial had been cancelled because the corpses were not taken care of in the mortuary, and could not withstand the travel to the North.

"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 said.

Security personnel had been posted in the area, according to Bakari, and the Anambra State police commissioner had visited them and told them that they would be put to work.

"However, once the victims have been buried, we will all return to our village in the north; we are no longer safe here." "As soon as he burys his family, the woman's husband will return to Adamawa; he is working here as a security guard," he stated.
