How Retired Air Vice-Marshal was killed in Kaduna, Neighbour narrates



A neighbour of retired Air Vice Marshal, Mohammed Maisaka, has narrated how he and his grandchild were killed at Rigasa, a community in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The neighbour, Abubakar Gwantu, said the case is certainly a planned murder as they left the building without picking a thing or threatening any other persons.

According to him, “the Armed men arrived Maisaka’s house late yesterday (Monday) night and met him and his wife in the living room and shot him dead.”

“The gunmen first visited the boys quarters and picked his personal physiologist and they forced him to lead them into the main house. During the commotion, they instantly killed AVM Maisaka.

“It is certainly a case of a planned murder. Because the gunmen responded to his wife, that they didn’t have business with her and just casually left the house without picking a thing or threatening anyone further,” he said.

“Maisaka had been paralyzed due to a medical condition for about three years and had been in rehabilitation until his death.”

“Whoever is responsible for this must have held a long grudge against him, because Maisaka has long not been in circulation, but only went for treatment abroad, convalescing  at home or at a local hospital for evaluation or emergency care.”

“In spite of his family opposition, he built and was running a private hospital in the densely populated Rigasa Community, Kaduna due to his passion for social work. He refused in spite of his privileges and social status to live outside the community where he also built his retirement home.”

“However, Allah knows best. May his Shahada (Martyrdom) grant him Jannah, Amin,” he prayed.

NewsWireNGR had earlier reported that the gunmen stormed the AVM residence located around Markarfi Road in Rigasa around 8:30 pm on Monday and shot him and his grandson, Mohammed Musa, who is a serving Airman, at close range.
