The family of former Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Ishaya Bamaiyi has been stricken with grief after the alleged assassination of the general’s older sister, Saratu and her granddaughter.
The incident is believed to have occurred between 3p.m. and 4p.m. yesterday October 5 at the residence of the deceased in the Zuru Local Government Area of Kebbi state.
The victims were hit on the head with a pestle and their bodies dumped in a well, ThisDay reports.
The deaths were reportedly confirmed to journalists by the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ishaku Bariu in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital.
He said:
"We have beefed up security with foot, motorcycle and vehicle patrol. People are going about their lawful businesses as investigation into the unfortunate killing of Mama and her granddaughter continues,"
"She and her granddaughter were murdered and then dragged into the well inside the compound. I don't think it was by the use of gun. They used a pestle to attack them.”
The commissioner also added that assassination was suspected because the deceased had money in her home but it was left untouched by the attackers.
