Zainab, who was strapped on her mother’s back during the clash, was killed by a stray bullet.
She was said to have died instantly.
Photos of her heartbreaking funeral hit the social media on Wednesday with some calling on the government to fight for her justice.
Recall that about 15 Shiite members and one policeman reportedly lost their lives, while scores were injured during the clash.
The members, under the leadership of incarcerated Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky were trekking for the annual Arbaeen Symbolic Trekking from Kano to Zaria in Kaduna state.
