'Mai Suya' robbed, murdered in Calabar

An Hausa man earning his living as a Suya seller has been murdered in Cross River State by hoodlums who robbed him.

The murdered Habibu Maude

It was gathered that the deceased, Habibu Maude, an indigene of Tangaza Local Government Area of Sokoto State, and a father of four, had been operating his Suya spot at White House Street, for many years and was very friendly with the residents of the area including those living in the Bogobiri area, a quarter populated by the Hausa community in the state.

Reports have it that Maude was at his Suya spot when the attackers visited him and asked him to hand over all the money in his possession, which he did without any argument but after robbing him, they shot him at point blank range and he died before help could come his way.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Irene Ugbo, has confirmed the incident, saying the force has begun investigations with a view to bringing the culprits to book.

“Yes, we got the report that a suya seller was shot by an unknown gunman along White House street. We have not made any arrest yet, but I can assure that we would track the killers,” she said.
