It was reported that after the robbery, the robbers drove away with the Honda Accord vehicle of the deceased.
A source revealed that despite a call for help from the deceased when he was being robbed, area residents did not come out to save him, adding that it was after the robbers fled that neighbours came out and rushed him to the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital (ATBUTH), Bauchi, along with his family members.
The Bauchi State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mohammed Ahmed Wakil, confirmed the incident to newsmen by telephone and stated that the incident occurred on Sunday at around 10 pm.
According to Wakil, the deputy police superintendent, while attempting to reach his building, the gang stabbed the deceased with a knife.
“After stabbing him, the robbers went away with his car, Honda Accord with registration number, EKY 388 CP.“After the robbers left, his neighbours and family members took him to the hospital where he was confirmed dead,” the PPRO informed.
However, the police spokesman said that State Police Commissioner Tanko Lawal Jimeta had directed a discreet investigation into the incident with a view to arresting the fleeing armed robbers in order to bring them to justice.
