Some gunmen on Saturday killed the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the Federal Medical Centre, Azare in Bauchi State, Dr Musa Mohammed.

Police spokesman Hassan Mohammed, an assistant superintendent of police (ASP), confirmed the development yesterday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Bauchi.

He said the deceased was shot and killed with Alhaji Muhammadu Manu, the district head of Yame community in Dambam Local Government Area.

“Mohammed, and Alhaji Manu, were shot dead in Yame town around 10.30pm on Saturday,” Mohammed said.

The spokesman, who said no arrest had been made, added that the police have begun investigation into the matter.

NAN learnt that the late doctor was ambushed on the Azare-Dambam Road by the suspected assailants, who took him to Yame town and killed him with the district head.

Until his appointment as the CMD of the centre, Mohammed was the chairman of the Bauchi State Primary Health Care Development Agency.
