UNMAID: Police Arrest Eight Persons Linked To The Murder Of Lecturer

The Borno State Police Command has verified the apprehension of eight suspects linked to the purported homicide of Dr. Kamar Abdulkadir, a Lecturer in the Department of Physical Health Education at the University of Maiduguri.

Abdulkadir was tragically killed in his office on campus, with his body discovered the following Monday bearing multiple injuries inflicted by the assailant.

According to the Police Public Relations Officer for the command, Nahun Daso, the perpetrators also absconded with the lecturer’s vehicle, phone, and laptop.

 “We reviewed the CCTV camera and saw them going out of the university with the deceased’s vehicle. However, the quality of the video was very poor so we could not see the number of people that were inside the car,” he said.

He clarified that an inquiry into the issue was still in progress. In response, the Director of Radio and Public Relations, Prof. Danjuma Gambo, speaking on behalf of the University’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abdullahi Shugaba, stated that the police and other security agencies had commenced an investigation to uncover the details surrounding his demise.

 Gambo said: “Given the gravity of the situation, management advises all staff and students to remain calm and go about their normal, legitimate businesses because the University is working closely with relevant security agencies to get to the root of the matter. 

“Management also wishes to assure parents, guardians, and other stakeholders that the University campus remains safe and secure for teaching, learning, and community service.

“Management appreciates the numerous messages of sympathy and support from all its stakeholders in this moment of grief.”
