Robbers kill choir master in Adamawa

01 February 2013, 16:03

Adamawa - Suspected armed robbers on Thursday shot dead the choir master of Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria (LCCN) in Girei, headquarters of Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa.

Some residents of the town told reporters that the incident occurred in the morning when the hoodlums, numbering about seven, forced their way into the deceased’s compound.

The inhabitants said the gunmen had robbed a bakery manager in the compound of N200,000 before entering the choir master’s residence.

“They went into the flat of choir master, Marcus Musa and started asking him ‘where is the money.’

“They shot him when he could not bring the expected money”, one of the residents said.

The Adamawa Police Command Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Ibrahim, confirmed the incident.

” I have a report from Girei that one person lost his life in a robbery incident,” Ibrahim said.
