The Head of the Science Department at the Niger State Polytechnic, Alhaji Abdulrashid Abdullahi, was on Thursday killed by three gunmen on the Zungeru-Tegina highway.

The News Agency of Nigeria learnt in Minna that Abdullahi was killed while on an official trip to Kaduna.

“I stopped because I thought they were security men but they immediately went for Abdullahi’s door with a machete.

“I tried to drive away but I heard the lecturer shout, I have been shot as they could not open his door. I drove the vehicle very fast back to Zungeru, where the lecturer was pronounced dead at a hospital,” he said.
