Aminu Mohammed Ibrahim, the 38-year-old son of Alhaji Mohammed Ibrahim, former Director General of the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), has been killed by suspected phone thieves in Kaduna.
The incident occured on Wednesday, October 28, around Kawo in Kaduna North Local Government Area of the state.
It was learnt that Aminu was flagging down a taxi, when the hoodlums lurking around the area stabbed him and made away with his phone.
It was gathered also that Aminu had only recently got employment with the Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO).
Confirming the incidence, his elder brother, Kamal Ibrahim, said he had received his appointment letter on October 20 and had travelled to Kano for his documentation.
He said Aminu returned to Kaduna on Wedneday night and was only trying to get a vehicle home, when he was stabbed him by the hoodlums who fled with his phone.
“He arrived sometime between 8:30 and 9:00pm and while trying to get a taxi, hoodlums stabbed him on the chest, near his heart and made away with his phone. He was taken to hospital and he gave the hospital staff our father’s number and mine to call and inform us but he died while they were treating him,” said Kamal.
