Unknown gunmen stormed Kuregu community in Wusasa, Zaria around 10:15 PM Sunday and abducted a university professor.

According to a reliable source that confirmed the story to SAHELIAN TIMES, “They met Professor Aliyu outside, beat him up before abducting 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, and the current HOD of Crop Protection.

His murdered son was buried this morning according to Islamic rites.

The abductors are yet to make demands as at the time of filing this report.
