The remains of late Aishat Noble-Mustapha, the Silverbird staff, murdered at her Ogudu Government Reserved Area residence in Lagos two weeks ago, was buried at Atan Cemetery, Lagos State, yesterday amid tears.
Meanwhile, autopsy report has shown that the deceased was not pregnant as widely reported.
Rather, the report showed that the 25-year-old lady died from internal bleeding.
She was reportedly buried at the insistence of her family, in spite of ongoing investigation into the circumstance that led to her murder.
However, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Nwosu, said the burial would not hamper investigation.
He said: “Crime has no time limit. I want to say that police is still investigating; some tests have been conducted and autopsy done.
“But we cannot add to the family’s trauma; they requested the burial and we allowed it.”
Spokesperson for the bereaved family and husband of late Aishat’s aunt, Mr. Abubakar Haruna, urged the police to unearth the circumstance surrounding her death and bring the killer(s) to book.
At the burial, her colleagues from Silverbird and the University of Lagos, where she was a student, wore black t-shirt bearing her picture.
