The Kano State Police command has confirmed the arrest of two suspects and recovery of a car, snatched by armed robbers, who killed the owner of the vehicle in Kano state.
The incident occurred on Saturday at  around 10:pm, along zoo road, near Shoprite when the suspected robbers shot at the driver of the car, identified as Isa Hassan Abubakar of Rijiyar Zaki quarters after forcefully removing him out of it.
An eyewitness said the carjackers started shooting sporadically in the air to scare people before they descended on the 50 years old man in his white Pontiac Vibe car.
“When they fired the gunshots in the air, people around Shoprite mall and Al-Hamsad tower started running helter skelter for dear life.
“While the commotion ensued, I saw the gunmen approached that guy in his car, forcefully removed him out and fired shot at him where he fell to the ground and the attackers zoomed off in the vehicle,” said the eyewitness, who preferred not be named.
The Public Relations Officer of the command, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, said police had swiftly reported to the scene after hearing the gunshots.
He added that on arrival, they chased the gunmen, who eventually abandoned the vehicle and ran away.
Mr Kiyawa further stated that the police also rushed the victim to the hospital where he died while receiving treatment.
He disclosed that two of the suspected robbers had been nabbed as investigation is ongoing.
