The murder of a former Provost Marshal, Major General Hassan Ahmed, has been confirmed by the Nigerian Army.

Ahmed was killed on Thursday night by unknown men, according to Daily Post.

A source claims the ambush occurred close to the Abaji area of Abuja.

The aggressors kidnapped General Ahmed’s sister, Safina Ahmed (initially mistaken for the wife).

The siblings and the deceased’s driver, Sergeant Bukar, were returning to the nation’s capital from Okene when they were attacked.

It is understood that General Ahmed made the trip without his guards.

The spokesman said the incident occurred when the top officer’s vehicle, “was attacked by gunmen while transiting along Lokoja – Abuja”.

Nwachukwu disclosed that an Army delegation, led by the Chief of Policy and Plans, Major General Anthony Omozoje, had visited the widow and other members of the bereaved family.

Members of the Nigerian Army Officers’ Wives Association (NAOWA), led by the Deputy National President, Stella Omozoje have also paid a condolence visit.

“The remains of the deceased senior officer will be accorded a befitting burial at the Lungi Barracks Cemetery on Friday, 16 July 2021 by 10 a.m.”, the statement added.
