About-to-wed couple shot by unknown gunmen in Kano

An intending couple who live in Kano didn’t experience their long time dream of becoming husband and wife as they were shot dead on Sunday by some unknown gunmen after returning from service at Living Faith Church, Sabongari.

The ugly incident occurred shortly after the morning service when the fiancee accompanied her partner to Shagari Quarters where he lived. Unfortunately, they had no inkling that they were trailed by gunmen.
A reliable source who claimed to be an eye-witness asserted that the killers were on a motorcycle as they slowly trailed the couple. Just as they were a little close to their destination, they shot at them and ran away.
The bullet hit the man on the head while the woman was hit very close to her chest. The man died instantly while his fiancee was rushed to the hospital for treatment where she later died of bleeding.
Further investigations revealed that few days later, another man who was a neighbour to the deceased was allegedly killed too by the same set of gunmen.
Meanwhile, attempts to reach the men of the Kano state police command to confirm the incident was met with brick walls, as the PPRO was not reachable as at the time of this report.
