In his words, “I have yet to get a call or message from anyone concerning the incident. Nobody called me; I decided to go on my own. I went to the state CID (Criminal Investigation Department) office and begged them to help me get the corpse so I could bury it because leaving it there might make it decompose. Then they took me to the mortuary, did some paperwork and released the remains to me.”

“I was the one who paid to transport the remains. I was charged N120,000 which I was forced to pay because that was the cheapest I got as the majority of people don’t like transporting corpses.”

Her mother, Alheri Emmanuel, who broke down in tears when speaking with newsmen, said she would never send her remaining seven children to school again.

“I have no demands; I don’t want anything but one thing I know is that my children will never go to school again.”
