The wife of one of the victims, Hauwa narrated what happened on the day her husband, Usman Muhammed was shot dead.
“The robbers killed Muhammed after collecting N32,000 from him. They moved to Akerele and Papa Uku streets in the same community where they molested and robbed residents.”
“About 12:24am, we heard someone knocking on our door. We were surprised. My husband asked who was there, but the person didn’t answer My husband went and opened the door. He saw the armed robbers. They were four at the door. One of them pointed his gun at my husband. We later heard that others were outside, waiting.
They followed my husband into our apartment.” Hauwa explained that after the bandits gained entry into their apartment, they demanded Muhammed’s money and her own jewellery.
“My husband and I handed over the money and the jewellery. Just as they were leaving, my husband dashed into the kitchen, brought a knife and attempted to stab one of the robbers. It was at that point they shot him in the stomach.”
Another lady who was hit by a stray bullet is clinging to life at the hospital.
A 3-hour operation without police intervention…. Now we know police is our friend. #God save Nigeria
