Ibisaki was killed by a stray bullet during the February 23rd presidential election in the state and she was laid to rest on Saturday March 30th.


Friends and family members gathered at Port Harcourt cemetery where her body was interred.

She is survived by her parents and two children.


The deceased father, Sir Daperi Amachree, while morning his daughter shortly after she was killed, had alleged that she was shot dead by soldiers deployed in the state during the election.


He had written on Facebook:

“Here lies my beautiful daughter Ibisaki, a post-graduate degree holder, full of cheer, love and kindness and mother of two. She was shot dead yesterday by a trigger happy and jittery soldier while she was on a national assignment with INEC.

“I have never arranged for the death of any youth. I hate violence and thuggery. If law enforcement agents have to kill an enemy, should it be my responsible and peaceful daughter? It is well. Only God knows why it happened. He will surely repay the wicked.”
