Some suspected bandits have killed the Deputy Vice Chancellor of Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto State, Yusuf Saidu.

This was revealed in a post shared by a senior staff of the university, Mohammed Sajo, on his social media handle on Monday.

Sajo said, “He was attacked and killed by the suspected Bandits today (Monday) on his way to Kaduna from Sokoto State.

“May Allah accept his soul and forgive his sin.

“A man of integrity, religion, dedication and courage,” the post added.

Saidu of Biochemistry, until his death, was the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research Innovation and Development Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto.

When our correspondent contacted the Police Public Relations Officer of the Nigerian Police, Sokoto State Command, Ahmed Rufai, he said the incident happened in Zamfara State, not Sokoto.

Meanwhile, efforts to speak with the Zamfara State Police spokesperson, Yazid Abubakar, were not successful as the PPRO did not respond to his phone call and text messages sent to his phone at the time of publication.
