Auwal lost his life when gunmen struck near the Rigasa train station in Kaduna on Friday night.

The graduate of Bayero University, Kano, was returning from a trip with some other activists when the unfortunate incident happened.

A security source, who spoke off the record, said Khalil might have been abducted.

Auwal was laid to rest in Kaduna on Saturday morning.

In a Facebook post, Nura Usman, one of the friends of the deceased, wrote: “In his quest to push for Security and safety of the North, he changed his Profile DP on WhatsApp and Facebook all to #SecureNorth frame. Unknown to him, he will be consumed by same Insecurity. Comrade Rabiu Auwal has done his best while alive to draw the attention of the authority to do it major responsibility of Securing the lives and Property of the People.”
