She was killed yesterday after she was hit by a stray bullet said to be from police gun at Layin Sarki in Tudun-Wada area of Zaria, Kaduna State.

 

According to Daily Post, the incident occurred when police and some hoodlums were exchanging fire in the area.

“The incident happened on Wednesday evening at about 6:00pm at my mother in-law’s residence, Hajiya Kaka Mai-Waina at Tudun-Wada.

“Normally, during Sallah period, my wife, her siblings and some of their relations used to converge at the house to celebrate Sallah and use the period to see one another.

“They were upstairs of the house when policemen chased some thugs who ran close to the house, only for those behind my wife to see her slump.”

 

Bawa said his wife was hit in eight different places and was rushed to the hospital for medical attention.

 

He added, “As I am talking to you, four pint of blood had been transfused into her because she lost lot of blood before the doctors came to her rescue.”

 

The Police Spokesperson in the State, ASP Aliyu Usman confirmed the incident, adding that investigation showed the bullet was not from the police.

 

He said, “Medical report from the doctor attending to the victim indicates that the bullet removed is not our own.

“The woman was hit in eight different places by pellets emanating from either den gun or double barrel. Remember, police don’t use gun powder.
