It was an emotional moment for students and teachers in Taraba State as the remains of the recently murdered teacher, Bassey Sardauna Nkuphee were laid to rest in Jalingo, the state capital.
It would be recalled that Nkuphee, a teacher with Model Secondary School, Jalingo, was recently stabbed to death by some of his students.
The student’s action compelled the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools (ASUSS), to ground academic activities in secondary schools in the state.
Nkuphee who was laid to rest in his family compound in Abuja phase ll in Jalingo metropolis, was said to be heading home from school when the incident happened.
Mourners, especially the slain teacher’s colleagues, tasked security operatives to ensure that the suspects behind the gruesome murder were fished out.
They also urged the government to take responsibility for the welfare of his aged parents, his wife and three children.
The Secretary of the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools, Dr Ishaku Kazon, who observed that the deceased teacher was the breadwinner of his family, urged the relevant authority to extend help to the family members.
Some teachers and students who spoke to our reporter described the deceased as one of the best teachers in the school.
