Gunmen have gunned down retired AVM Mohammed Maisaka, the proprietor and medical director to MSK Hospital, at his residence in Makarfi road of Rigasa ward of Kaduna State.
Saleh Bala, the deceased’s brother-in-law, narrated the incidence on a Facebook post, saying that, “Yesterday late evening, armed men arrived my brother in-law’s house AVM Mohammed Maisaka (Rtd) at Rigasa, Kaduna, met him in the living room with his wife, my sister Inno and shot him to death. They had first gone to the boys quarters and picked his physiotherapist (also a NAF personal), who they forced to lead them into the main house. In the commotion they also shot the physiotherapist, killing him. Certainly a case of a planned murder. They responded to my sister’s plea to them to also take her life by telling her that they did not have a problem with her, and just casually left the house without picking a thing or threatening anyone further. Maisaka had been paralyzed from a medic condition for about 3 years and had been in rehabilitation until his murder yesterday. Whoever is responsible for this must have held a long grudge against him, because Maisaka has long not been in circulation, but only about and between treatment abroad, convalescent at home or at a local hospital for evaluations or emergency care,” he said.
Maisaka was one time Director of the Nigerian Air Force Medical Services, and an ABU Teaching Hospital lecturer of Internal Medicine.
