The former Nigerian High Commissioner to South Africa, Ambassador S.S Yusuf, has been murdered in the early hours of yesterday by yet-to-be identified assassins.
The Ambassador was thrown out through the balcony of his house by four assassins in Zone 6 District of Abuja. The assailants broke into his house at about 2am on Monday night. He was thrown out from the third floor of the apartment while he was alone.
A relative of the deceased, Mrs Yemi Adebisi Kuti said the assailants did not tamper with anything in her brother’s apartment.
“They did not even tamper with the smallest item in the house. They just came and carried out their assignment,” she said.
Born in 1957, the late Ambassador Yusuf hailed from Niger State.
