A Major General in the Nigerian Army and former Provost Marshal, Hassan Ahmed has been assassinated in Abuja.
He was murdered Thursday night in the Abaji area of the Federal Capital Territory. The assailants also kidnapped his wife.
A source close to the family told newsmen that the couple were coming from Okene when they were attacked.
“They opened fire on his vehicle, he died. The driver pretended to be dead from the wound he sustained, so they took the wife away”, the informant said.
