Unknown assailants on Monday slaughtered the daughter of Musa Illu, the Director General of Governor Umaru Al – Makura’s campaign organization.

Mr. Illu’s daughter, Amina Suleiman, was seven months pregnant.

Mr. Illu’s younger brother, Namairo Babai, told PREMIUM TIMES that late Amina was found in the pool of her blood with her neck cut and a knife in her stomach.

Mr. Babai said that late Amina was killed in her home in faraway Katsina State when her husband, Suleiman Mohammed, was on his way to Zaria for his doctorate degree programme.

“Her husband was on his way to ABU Zaria. After the weekend when he tried calling but couldn’t get her, he sent someone to check just to be told that she was slaughtered and in poll of her blood”.

Mr. Babai added that late Amina who got married two years ago will be buried by 4 p.m. on Tuesday in her husband’s home town in Katsina State.

When PREMIUM TIMES visited the family compound along Shendam road, Lafia, Nasarawa, sympathizers and family members were seen consoling the father of Musa Illu who was weeping.

Among the first callers was the state’s first lady, Salamatu Tanko Almakura.

    May her soul rest in peace. May God exposes this behind it. Amen !

    The police needs to take a closer look at the husband. It seems like a crime of opportunity to me, meaning that, someone killed her with the hope that her death would be taken as politically based….

      I believe the poor guy was just checking on his pregnant wife. If not that this unfortunate incident happened, who knows how many times he will ordinarily call her within an hour. It is just unfortunate that this happened. It is usual for a husband of a two year marriage to more than intermittently call his wife , and it is also usual for him to get worried if no response was received. I don’t think the husband has anything to do with it.

        Especially since she was pregnant!it would be normal for her husband to check up on her.

    If truly our democracy is fashioned in the way of the Americans, then why this spilling of blood and palpable fears each election time, whereas elections in United States is always like Calabar Carnival, full of pomp and pageantry? What has this innocent young woman done to deserve such cruel act? God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, i pray thee father, visit the perpetrators of this wicked act with your greatest anger before the end of this week in Jesus name..Amen

      My brother, that is half truth. Politics wears the same uniform of heartlessness, lies, manipulation, corruption and murder all over the world. It is the proportion that defers. It is the trade of the dishonest and pull him downs.

      With regards to the girl, the perpetrators have wronged God and by His special Grace they and member of their household become the enemies of God from today and they will know no rest.

  • objective

    What on earth will prompt a human being to do such to another human being? It is key that we live our lives knowing that one day we will be accountable to God .

    A man that decided to kill a pregnant young woman should recognise that God is still strictly in the business of punishing evil doers. Surely and promptly the Almighty God will bring judgement upon the perpetrators and members of their household.

    I pray that the Almighty God will encourage Mr. Illu. It is not what we should wish for anyone, but I urge him to take heart. May God grant him the fortitude to bear the loss. And may her soul rest in peace.
