Gunmen kill ex-ATBU director of works

The Bauchi State Police Command has confirmed the killing of Mr Hassan Jama’are, a former Director of Works, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), by unidentified gunmen.


The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ahmed Wakili, told newsmen on Monday in Bauchi that Jama’are was attacked and killed around 10 p.m. on Sunday.


He said that the gunmen trailed the ex-ATBU director to his house and shot him when he was about to open his gate.


“They snatched his Honda Accord car keys and went away with them,’’ he said.


Wakili said that Jamma’are, however, raised an alarm when he was attacked, which attracted neighbours to come to his aid, adding that the neighbours later reported the incident at the police station.


He said no arrest had been made but assured that the police had started investigations into the killing.
