“I have lost everything in this world. My wife and four children are all gone just like that. This is the worst thing anyone would experience."
Explaining how it happened, Jibril added:
“They were coming back home after she visited her sister who was living in the nearby town. She and the four children were all wearing hijabs; that was why the gunmen targeted them.
“As I’m talking to you, I’m in the process of recovering their corpses. The police have given me some documents which I will use to collect the corpses. I’m in the mortuary now, they are demanding N30, 000 from me before they will release the corpses of my family.
“My hope is to take the corpses to Ganye Local Government Area in Adamawa state and bury them because the cemetery the Arewa community is using here is already filled."
The late wife's details
The devastated husband gave the name of his late wife as Harira Jibril, 32, and those of the four children as Fatima, 9; Khadijah, 7; Hadiza, 5; and Zaituna, 2.
“I’m now left with nobody; they have wiped out my entire family. I am so worried and in trauma, there is a need for the government to do something."
