1. Travelling Without His Escorts
According to a report on Vanguard, Major General Hussaini Ahmed was murdered by suspected bandits on Wednesday night, while he was coming from Okene with his sister in-law.
The report revealed that General Hussaini was not traveling with his escorts when the incidence happened.
So, I really think these bandits were able to succeed in their nefarious operation because Hussaini was not moving with his escorts.
If you have ever seen an Army General pass, you would really be overwhelmed with the glory of Army escorts that usually follow them.
So, I’m very sure that the bandits wouldn’t have dared General Hussaini had it been he was moving with his tight Escorts as a General.
2. Travelling In Late Hours
A report on PmNews Revealed that General Hussaini Ahmed was murdered on Wednesday night; this means that he was actually traveling during the late hours of the day.
So, General Hussaini should have avoided traveling in the night, especially seeing that he was not even with his escorts.
It would really be wise to know that these bandits always have more strength to operate in the night.
And seeing that General Hussaini was a high-profile person in Nigeria, he should have known that he may be a target to these evil bandits, who are always looking for wealthy victims that would bring out jaw-breaking amount of money as ransom.
But which ever; any thing that would happen, would always happen no matter how careful we may seem to be. Just that we need to always do our own parts by playing wise and being careful in all we do.
The article is never meant to blame the actions of General Hussaini, rather it’s just to bring out some points that others would need to learn from.
Recall that Major General Hussaini Ahmed, was reportedly killed by bandits on Wednesday night along Lokoja-Abuja expressway, while he was coming from Okene with his sister in-law.

The bandits were said to have sprung out from the bush and opened bullet fire on his car. These evil men later succeeded in killing General Hussaini, and also Kidnapped his sister in-law.
Major General Hussaini Ahmed is a former Provost Marshal of the Nigerian Army, during the tenure of Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai.
Reports said he was recently posted to Abuja, and until his death, he was the Director at the Army Headquarters in Abuja.
