A fresh graduate from the Bayero University, Kano identified as Sule Mathew, has been shot and killed by unknown gunmen.
The deceased who is a first-class from the Faculty of Communication while on his way to Anambra state for the mandatory one year National Youth Service Corps scheme, salemgists learnt.
A source stated that Sule was killed with other passengers at Ekwulobia, in Anambra State.
Conforming the sad incident, a coursemate of late Sule, Silas Manager said late Mathew was billed to participate in the forthcoming orientation program of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) before his death.
“Mathew was among the first set of students to intern with PRNigeria Centre in Kano in 2019. He lost his father in June, few months to his final examination, and graduated as the overall best student of our Department in August 2021 and was due to enrol for mandatory NYSC programme next week.”
Also, Sule’s sister, Jemila disclosed that he traveled with his boss on that ill-fated day along with other passengers including the driver in a private vehicle.
“After waylaying them, the gunmen opened fire on them killing all of them except the driver who escaped. So, when we couldn’t reach him and heard of the incident, we sent Sule’s picture to the mortuary to confirm if he was among those killed and we got feedback that he was identified among those killed.”
