    Unknown gunmen suspected to be armed robbers have killed
    a 27-year-old man, identified as Mohammed Rabiu. From reliable sources it was gathered that Rabiu, a student, who just returned
    from studies in Malaysia, was shot and killed in Kaduna.
    Jafar Ibrahim Ali, a close friend that witnessed the incident,
    narrated that Rabiu was shot in his car after driving from
    Abuja to Kaduna.
    According to him, they drove straight to see one of Rabiu’s
    friends in his house along Lugard Hall, but were told he had
    gone out.
    Ali, who survived the incident said, they requested for his
    number, ”We were waiting to be given the number before a
    tricycle parked near us and three men alighted from it and
    made straight to where we parked and demanded we hand
    over our phones.
    “Initially, we thought they were policemen because, they
    were pointing guns at us, but the next thing I heard was a gun
    shot,”he narrated.
    He further narrated that the gunman that stood by Rabiu’s
    window and was pointing the gun at him shot.
    “The men kept firing as they opened the doors of the car
    pushing us out as they entered the car and drove away with it.
    “All these happened in less than 2 minutes, as I struggled
    with them, they kept firing but somehow the bullets from the
    locally made guns missed me, but they shot my friend.
    “It was when they left that we got a car from the house, which
    took him to the hospital, but he was confirmed dead in less
    than an hour after the incident,” he explained.
    Though he said the matter was reported to the police, who
    came and conducted preliminary investigation, it was yet to
    be established whether it was a case of robbery or
    Family sources disclosed that Rabiu came back to Nigeria on
    the completion of his studies in Malaysia. He was buried
    according to Islamic rite.
