Remains of Deborah Yakubu laid to rest

The remains of Deborah Yakubu, a 200-level Home Economics student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, who was burnt to death last Thursday over alleged blasphemy, have been laid to rest.

She was buried in her hometown,Tunga Magajiya, in Rijau Local Government Area of Niger State on Saturday.

Tears flowed freely as she was being buried as well wishers and relations lamented how she was killed.

She was buried around 6:30pm at the Christian cemetery in Tunga Magaiya.

Her family remained adamant on proceeding with the exercise despite protest by youths of Tunga Magaiya who felt Sokoto Government should have Ben responsible for her burial.

Her uncle, who is the Pastor of ECWA in Tunga Magajiya, Emmanuel Maaji, led the prayers at the cemetery before she was lowered to mother earth.
