The burnt remains of Miss Deborah Yakubu, a student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto State, have been laid to rest in her hometown, Tungan Magajiya in Rijau Local Government Area of Niger State.

Stonix News however gathered that the Sokoto State government had allegedly insisted that the body be kept in the morgue until investigations were concluded.

Deborah was stoned to death and burnt on last Thursday by her fellow students for allegedly making a blasphemous statement on a class WhatsApp group.

The deceased, it was gathered, had been living with family members in Sokoto since she was in primary school before her her gruesome murder.

Stonix News gathered that while the body of Deborah was being transported home for burial, an official of the Sokoto State government allegedly called that the body be returned to the government.

Daily Post reported that the government had asked the family to deposit the deceased in the mortuary until burial arrangements were concluded.

However, the parents were said to have disagreed with the government’s position, while insisting that their daughter’s body would be buried today Saturday.

Meanwhile, Deborah’s mother is said to have been unconscious and the father in grief and pain shortly after the news of her murdered was relayed to them.

Pastor of the family in charge of First ECWA in Tunga Magajiya, Pastor Emmanuel Maaji, reportedly explained that the family had insisted that Deborah be buried today Saturday.

According to him, the parents are not happy with the way and manner the government was handling the issue.

The cleric said the body of the deceased was transported back home in a chartered bus and not a government vehicle.

Maaji further stated that the government only called and said that it was not right for the family to take the body like that without informing them.
