15-year-old basic three pupil, Sarah Ibikunle, who was shot dead during the armed robbery incident that happened in Lekki Phase 1 on March 12th, has been buried. She was buried at Ikoyi Cemetry on Monday March 22nd.
Family members, her teachers and her classmates who gathered to bury her spoke of how she dreamt of becoming a Lawyer. Her class teacher, Mr Adebayo Moses told Punch “She was quite brilliant; not troublesome, accommodating and friendly. Her death is very painful.”
The matron of the school, Mrs. Dorcas Ogundare, also spoke glowingly about her “The last day she was in school, she came a bit late and I joked with her that she would wash toilets. She just smiled and I told her to rush to the class. She was a child to all of us and had a bright future,” she said.
