The remains of the pregnant woman who was gruesomely murdered along with her four children in Anambra State have been laid to rest.
Harira Jubril, 32, and her four children, Fatima, 9, Khadijah, 7, Hadiza, 5, and Zaituna, 2, were killed by unknown gunmen in Anambra state over the weekend.
The tragic incident occurred at Isulo, Orumba North Local Government Area of the state, on Sunday, May 22.
The bereaved husband of the deceased claimed their corpse from the morgue on Tuesday, May 24, and proceeded to bury them on Wednesday, May 25.
The burial rites were conducted according to Islamic injunctions, and some members of the Hausa community in the state attended the funeral.

Her grieving husband speaking with newsmen about the heart wrenching incident said,
“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.
“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”. He said.
