Daily Trust - - JOBS & CAREERS -

The Kaduna State Po­lice Com­mand, yes­ter­day, ar­rested seven sus­pects over the death of Shehu Auwal, a tai­lor who was killed on July 10 in the state.

The Po­lice Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Muhk­tar Aliyu, a Deputy Su­per­in­ten­dent of Po­lice, made the dis­clo­sure to the News Agency of Nige­ria (NAN) in Zaria, Kaduna State.

Aliyu said Shehu Auwal, 32, pop­u­larly known as Doko, was mur­dered by uniden­ti­fied per­sons in the early hours of Tues­day.

The po­lice spokesman said all those found with a hand in his death would be brought to jus­tice.

He ap­pealed to res­i­dents to al­ways give use­ful in­for­ma­tion to law en­force­ment agen­cies to en­able them to take proac­tive mea­sures. NAN re­ports that late Auwal is sur­vived by one wife and six chil­dren.

Mo­hammed Sani, el­der brother of the de­ceased, said it was the late Auwal’s wife that raised the alarm that her hus­band had yet to re­turn home since Mon­day night when he left for a meet­ing.

He said late Auwal left home on Mon­day night where he at­tended a po­lit­i­cal meet­ing along­side his fel­low politi­cians at Tudun Wada, Zaria on the fate­ful day. Sani said they quickly called his friend whom they went out to­gether, mak­ing in­quiries of his where­abouts.

He said his dead body was later re­cov­ered at Ko­far Doka along Jos road in Zaria.

He said Auwal was a pro­fes­sional tai­lor do­ing busi­ness with many prom­i­nent per­son­al­i­ties.
