Suspected Boko Haram Islamists are continuing to kill innocent people in Nigeria although police and other security agencies are trying all they can to arrest them.
Last night, three other prominent people were shot dead. Among them was
Alhaji Mustapha Fulawama, a political stakeholder and friend of former Borno State governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.
The other two are also prominent businessmen in the area. Local people said that those killed have been not only generous but also contributed a lot towards development of the region.
According to police, Fulawama was was shot dead with two other business
partners in front of his residence at Maiduguri. The killers fled immediately after realizing that the three victims had died.
Area local leader, Francis Obune said, ‘I talked with some people who were near the scene. They said that the killers came to the deceased’s home in a Golf car. By the time they came he was not around. They patiently waited for him to come back and shot at him before coming out of his car.’
Obune said that the killers did not take anything from the deceased which means they had come with the sole intention of eliminating him.
The spokesman of the Joint Task Force Lieutenant-Colonel Sagir Musa, confirmed the incident and said they are hunting for the killers.
