Gunmen Kill NNPC Boss’ Brother In Kaduna


At least one person have been confirmed dead and so many others injured as gunmen suspected to be armed robbers attack motorists along Kachia road in the Southern part of Kaduna State, North West Nigeria in the early hours of Sunday.

Eyewitnesses said this is not the first time that armed robbers are attacking vehicles during day time along the road in spite of the several military and police checkpoints on the road.

Although an eyewitness said the attack was carried out by suspected Fulani herdsmen, the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police who confirmed the incident to Channels Television said it was an armed robbery attack.

According to him, the robbers blocked the road at about 7am Sunday morning and robbed all vehicles. In the process of their operations, one of the victims who was driving in a private car and identified as the brother of the Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) was brutally injured and later died at Saint Gerald’s Catholic Hospital where he was rushed for treatment.

According to the commissioner, the armed robbers fled the scene of the attack before policemen could rush to the area while a combine team of policemen, soldiers and navy have been drafted to the area to forestall a reoccurrence of the ugly incident.
