Unknown gunmen killed top military officer in Kaduna.

Onyxnewsng reports that unknown gunmen stormed the residence of Air Vice Marshall (Rtd) Muhammad Maisaka in Rigasa area of Kaduna and shot him dead.

Late Air Vice Marshall  Muhammad Maisaka(Rtd).

Until his death, the retired Airforce Officer was the Managing Director, Maisaka Specialist Hospital – a medical facility he established to help people in the highly populated Rigasa community.

He was one-time Director of the Nigerian Air Force Medical Services, and a Lecturer of Internal Medicine at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Teaching Hospital who helped in producing hundreds of doctors across Nigeria and abroad.

Alhough the State Police Command is yet to confirm the incident, a family source, one Abubakar Gwantu said: “The armed men arrived Maisaka’s house late yesterday (Monday) night and met him and his wife in the living room and shot him dead.”

“The gunmen first visited the boys quarters and picked his personal physiologist and they forced him to lead them into the main house. During the commotion, they instantly killed the AVM.

“It is certainly a case of a planned murder. Because the (gunmen) responded to his wife that they didn’t have business with her, and just casually left the house without picking a thing or threatening anyone further.”

Gwantu said Maisaka had been paralysed due to a medical condition for about three years and had been in rehabilitation until his murder on Monday night.

Whoever is responsible for this must have held long grudges against him because Maisaka has long not been in circulation but only went abroad for treatment to convalescent at home or at a local hospital for evaluations or emergency care.”

“In spite of his family opposition, he built and was running a private hospital in the densely populated Rigasa community, Kaduna as his typical character for social work.”

He refused in spite his privileges of social status to live outside the community where he also built his retirement home.”

“However, Allah knows best. May his Shahada (Martyrdom) grant him Jannah (Paradise) Aameen,” he added.
