This keeps Ms Sule's family and friends in the dark as they remain ignorant of why their beloved one was killed.

Legit.ng gathers that the parents are in hiding out of fear for their lives as they don't know the motivation behind their daughter's murder.

Ms Sule's parents react

Ms Sule's father, Adewale Sule, said he heard the gunfire and quickly rushed outside from the house.

Mr Sule narrated:

"I saw the guy shooting my daughter. He shot the last round and I pursued him. He ran back to his car."

Her mother, Tawakalitu Sule, said she last heard from her less than two hours before the shooting when her daughter asked her when she was going to be home.

Ms Sule's friend speaks

The deceased's close friend, Habibat Magaji, was cited as saying that she could not think of anything that would make anyone want to kill her.
