A former Nigerian beauty queen and doctoral student in Philadelphia, United States, Najeebat Sule, has been shot dead while sitting in her car in front of her family’s home.
The 24-year-old lady known to her loved ones as Najee was killed shortly before 6:00pm on March 12, it was reported.
The victim’s father, Adewale Sule, said he heard the gunshot of his daughter’s killer and emerged from the house in time to see the suspect fire the last shot.
He said, “I saw the guy shooting my daughter. He shot the last round, and I pursued him.”
The ex-beauty queen was rushed to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital where she was pronounced dead about 30 minutes later.
The family are currently staying at an undisclosed location over unspecified concerns for their safety.
