Ikweli newspaper reports that Jose Salina, a professor at Rovuma University in the northern city of Nampula, was shot by persons unknown early on Tuesday (April 30) outside his home near the Carvalheira building.
Ikweli reports that the 37-year-old teacher was shot as he was returning home from work, and shortly before entering his home. Sources at the scene said that the gunman fired four shots, hitting his victim with three of them, then got into a car and sped off.
The victim was taken to Nampula Central Hospital.
“I was surprised when I heard the first shot. I actually thought it was a thunderstorm, but then I heard three more shots in a row and him shouting for help. I ran there and found him sprawled on the ground. I took him to the car and drove him to Nampula hospital,” a resident of the same building, whose identity Ikweli withheld over concerns for his safety, said.
“On the way to hospital, I asked him what had happened, but he said he didn’t not know and had no idea who was behind [the shooting],” the source added.
The victim’s family declined to comment on the event, saying only that they were in a state of shock, and that justice must be done.Source: Jornal Ikweli
