Tears as slain Kaduna teacher is laid to rest

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - THE METRO SECTION - From Ab­dul­ga­niu Al­abi, Kaduna

IT was a sad mo­ment for fam­ily mem­bers and friends as 39-year-old teacher and mother of two, Es­ther Taiwo Olo­ri­ade, who was stran­gled and her Peu­geot 307 car taken away by her as­sailants, was laid to rest in Kaduna on Mon­day.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened last week Thurs­day, af­ter her hus­band, Mr. Gbenga Olo­ri­ade, had left home at Ang­wan Maigero, Chikun lo­cal gov­ern­ment area of Kaduna State with their two chil­dren while she pre­pared for the day’s task.

It was af­ter her col­leagues at a pri­vate school, Good­news Acad­emy, where she was teach­ing did not see her and at­tempts to reach her through her mo­bile phone failed that, they alerted her hus­band who de­cided to go back home.

Ac­cord­ing to the hus­band, when he got to the house and the car was not around, he thought she had gone out. “But I dis­cov­ered that the sound of the tele­vi­sion was louder than nec­es­sary. I be­came ap­pre­hen­sive and quickly en­tered the house and saw rope on her neck with bruises all over her face. I rushed her to the hospi­tal where she was con­firmed dead. It was the sad­dest mo­ment of my life,” he said. Rev­erend Si­mon Adewuyi of First Bap­tist Church (English Assem­bly) Kaduna, told the gath­er­ing at the fu­neral to do good and serve God faith­fully be­cause whether short or long, death is in­evitable.
