Gunmen Shoot Down Gen. Mamman Shuwa In Maidugiri–PT

Posted: November 2, 2012 in Uncategorized

Gunmen shot dead a retired general and a northern elder statesman, Mamman Shuwa, on Friday in Maidugri, the Borno state capital.
He was reportedly shot around 11:30am.

Eye witnesses said the Retired General was shot multiple times in front of his house at lower Gwange area.
Mr. Shuwa was one of few residents of the area who were still in their houses.

Most of the residents deserted their homes after the JTF reportedly went on rampage about two weeks ago when an Improvised Explosive Device planted on their route exploded and killed a lieutenant and six soldiers.
Soldiers reportedly burnt many houses and fired indiscriminately leading to the dead of several civilians.

A source from the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital said Mr. Shuwa died at the hospital after he was rushed there. The deceased will be buried by 4:00pm today.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

The JTF spokesperson, Sagir Musa, is currently unreachable as his phone is busy.
