First class graduate shot dead while traveling to Anambra for NYSC



Unknown gunmen have killed Sule Mathew, a fresh graduate from the Bayero University, Kano with a first-class from the Faculty of Communication while on his way to Anambra state for the mandatory one year National Youth Service Corps scheme.

Sule was killed with other passengers at Ekwulobia, in Anambra State.

A coursemate of late Sule, Silas Manager, who spoke to PR Nigeria said late Mathew was billed to participate in the forthcoming orientation program of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) before his death.

“Mathew was among the first set of students to intern with PRNigeria Centre in Kano in 2019. He lost his father in June, few months to his final examination, and graduated as the overall best student of our Department in August 2021 and was due to enrol for mandatory NYSC programme next week.'' Salis manager said.

Another coursemate who couldn't hold back his tears said.

''He was on a 6-month non-residential fellowship program that trains, and mentors young citizen activists to push for democratic reforms – Gidan Yanci. He was on his way to Anambra from Abuja when the gunmen attacked their vehicle” a tear-filled Mr Gambo Ibrahim, a bosom friend of Mr Mathew, who had been living with him right from their Diploma days narrated.

His sister, Jemila disclosed that Mathew traveled with his boss on that ill-fated day along with other passengers including the driver in a private vehicle.
