Moin Amsuri, a Lebanese who spent 30 years of his life teaching mathematics in different schools in Sokoto state, has been murdered.
According to El-Mustapha Sani, spokesman of the Sokoto state police command, Amsuri was killed on Thursday.
Sani said armed robbers could likely be behind the tragic incident, disclosing that investigation was ongoing.
“The deceased was suspected to have been killed by gunmen who are right now at large,” he said.
”The incident was said to have occurred on Thursday at his residence in Yauri flats, Sokoto, and it was reported to the Gwiwa Police Station on the same day.
”We are suspecting that the assailants were armed robbers as his Toyota car is still missing.”
The spokesman said the command would not relent until the perpetrators of the nefarious act were fished out and brought to justice.
