Deborah Yakubu buried in hometown


Deborah Yakubu, the Shehu Shagari College of Education student who was killed by fellow students for alleged blasphemy has been buried in her hometown of Tunga Magajiya, in Rijau local government area of Niger State.

The Nation reports that 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 been 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.
