Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Habibu Umar Aminu

The Aca­demic Staff Union of Univer­sity (ASUU) Kaduna State chap­ter has ex­pressed con­cern over the killing of its col­league Malam Abubakar Shehu.

Late Shehu who was a lec­turer in the Phys­i­ol­ogy Depart­ment at the Kaduna state univer­sity was shot by armed men last month along Kaduna - Brinin Gwari Road ac­cord­ing to a state­ment signed by the union chair­man Dr. Sadiq Abubakar Abdu.

“It is very dis­heart­en­ing to note that even af­ter the killing of Malam Abubakar and two other pas­sen­gers on that fateful day, there is no sin­gle Po­lice or Mil­i­tary check­point along the road apart from the one in Birnin Gwari town,’’ it said.

It stated that the killings in the state and coun­try at large have be­come a source of worry and called on the Kaduna State govern­ment to syn­er­gize with federal au­thor­i­ties to es­tab­lish a per­ma­nent Mil­i­tary and po­lice pres­ence on the said road.

The union also noted “the fright­en­ing and dan­ger­ous rates of un­em­ploy­ment es­pe­cially among grad­u­ate in the coun­try which led to the loss of about 19 lives at var­i­ous re­cruit­ment cen­ters or­ga­nized by the Im­mi­gra­tion ser­vice.”
