Around 10:15pm yesterday, armed kidnappers stormed Kuregu community in Wusasa, Zaria and whisked away a university professor.
According to a reliable source that confirmed the story to SAHELIAN TIMES, “They met Prof. Aliyu outside, beat him before kidnapping him.”
“Abdul came out of the house after he heard his father’s scream. Before he reached the place where his father was, they shot him dead. They proceeded to break into the house to look for more people. His other son, Khalifa, escaped before they could gain entrance,” the source added.
Another family member was also shot but is currently receiving treatment.
The professor, identified as Aliyu Waziri, is a staff of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi.
His murdered son was buried this morning according to Islamic rites.
At the time of filing this report, it’s not clear what the demands of the kidnappers are.
