The thieves carted away the day’s sales.
Gunmen suspected to be armed robbers invaded a fuel station in Kaduna on Saturday, killed the manager and carted away an unspecified amount of money.
Witnesses said the incident occurred at about 6:45 p.m. when three armed men in an ash-colour Gulf car filled their tank in Ruma filling station, opposite Ungwan Muazu, along Nnamdi Azikwe way, Kaduna.
They ordered the female fuel attendant to hand over the day’s sales.
“Three of them came into the fuel station in an ash colour Gulf car and ordered the attendant to hand over her sales after she had filled their tank,” a witness said. “She didn’t argue with them, she complied. In fact, they looked like the same gang who attacked a lecturer in Kinkinau GRA.”
“They now moved to where the manager was sitting and demanded him to surrender the station’s money to them. They shot him point blank in the head when he told them he does not have any money with him. They also shot sporadically at other people around who tried to raise alarm and missed them narrowly,” he added.
“People continued to pelt stones at them as they raced out of the station, made u-turn and drove towards Abuja junction.”
The village head of Kinkinau GRA, Sulaiman Dan’amarya, while confirming the incident, said the District Head of Ungwan Muazu, Ahmed Idris, and others took the victim (the station manager) to 44 Military Hospital where he later died at about 10 p.m..
While commending security agents for their quick response, Mr. Idris described the frequent attack in the area as unfortunate and alarming. He called on the residents to continue to remain vigilant and pray to Allah to bring to an end such criminal activities.
“Our prayers will not be in vain, people should be patient, God in his infinite mercy will intervene inshaa-Allah,” he said.
