Ahmed Jubril, identified as the husband of Harira Jubril, the pregnant woman who was killed by unknown gunmen alongside four children in Anambra state on Sunday, opens up on the incident as he considers it his worst life experience.
The deceased’s husband revealed that his late wife was 9 months pregnant and due to be delivered of a baby before the evil struck.
“I have lost everything in this world, my wife and four children, all gone just like that. This is the worst thing any person would experience in life.” The man lamented.
“Fatima, who was the eldest, was 9 years old followed by her sister Aisha, who was 7. Then Hadiza, 5 years and Zaituna, 2 years old,” Ahmed revealed to BBC News Pidgin, disclosing that all the 4 children were in school before their demise.
Describing how the unfortunate incident happened, Ahmed narrated how his wife had gone to visit his sister who was residing in another part of Anambra while he was at work on the day.
Ahmed revealed that it wasn’t until he got back that he was informed by his brother, who then took him to the hospital to see their deceased body.
Jubril, who is an indigene of Ganye local government area of Adamawa state, said no government official or police officer had paid him any visit even after the incident had occurred.
“Nobody has come to meet me, nothing like the government or police. It is only my work that is helping me at the moment.”
Ahmed though has revealed his immediate plans will be to transport the remains of his family to Adamawa state as he wishes not to bury them in Anambra.
“I am looking for money to transport their remains to Adamawa state, where I want to bury them,” he said.
The spokesperson for Anambra Police Command, DSP Ikenganyia Anthony, confirmed the deaths revealing investigations were ongoing on the matter.
“Our investigation has started over this matter and our plan is strategic because the aim is for us to get the people who did this thing,” he told BBC News Pidgin.
