Nigerian beauty queen PhD student, 24, is shot dead sitting in her car outside her home in Philadelphia - as homicides spike 28 per cent in City of Brotherly Love

A former Nigerian beauty queen and doctoral student in Philadelphia has been shot dead while sitting in her car in front of her family's home, and now her parents are hiding out of fear for their lives.

Najeebat Sule, 24, known to her loved ones as Najee, was killed shortly before 6pm on March 12, steps away from her residence in the 8800 block of Frankford Avenue.

Nearly three weeks later, police have not found a motive and have made no arrests, leaving Sule's family and friends searching for answers. She had only recently earned a Master's degree in public health.

Magaji was among the last people to have seen Sule alive before she was gunned down. The two women had spent the night before at Magaji's home, eating snacks and watching Netflix together.

Less than 24 hours later, Sule was sitting in her grey Toyota Corolla, exchanging text messages with Magaji, when an unidentified man walked up to the vehicle with a gun drawn and shot her several times. .

Sule's father, Adewale Sule, heard the gunfire and emerged from the house just in time to see the suspect fire the last of the shots at his daughter. “I saw the guy shooting my daughter. He shot the last round, and I pursued him. He ran back to his car,” said the father.

Najeet was rushed to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital, where she was pronounced dead about 30 minutes later. Her mother, Tawakalitu Sule, said she last heard from Najeet less than two hours before the shooting when her daughter asked her when she would be home.

Najeet is survived by her parents and two sisters. Sule had only recently earned a Master's degree in public health from West Chester University and was pursuing a doctorate. In 2019, she was crowned a second runner-up at the Miss Nigeria International pageant.

Sule's shooting death comes amid a surge in gun violence in Philadelphia, which has seen a 29 per cent homicide rate increase over the last year. Sule is among 120 people who have been killed in Philadelphia so far this year according to Fox29.

No place is safe on earth, America is more dangerous than Nigeria, but you will never see their media or social media blacklisting their country, it's unusual of them.

Must be a white supremacist who couldn't stand seeing a black girl succeed.

Complete lie. It's obvious you're not following American TV social media pages or even their ordinary citizens' SM accounts. Go to Twitter and see drama.

What are you ranting about?

America is a thousand times more dangerous than Nigeria.
I was referring to the part of his post that American media & their citizens don't talk about its security problems or ills on international scene. Next time, read properly before commenting.

You should spend more time looking at American media pages...talkless the social media pages. Americans bash their country well well.

When Yahoo was allowing commenting on their articles, I used to lurk there. Some of the comments you read there self...makes you wonder if the US is about to break out in open war.

Even the American government admits that the US ranks one of the unsafest countries in the world.

Nigeria has its wahala but these are merely associated with corruption and poverty. Meanwhile, the us problems are way beyond easy repairs; a depressed gun man can create the damage that will leave hundreds dead, there is fear of terrorism and also the issue with hate, racism and gun violence. But still America is the richest and most prosperous country. I’d take it over Nigeria any damn day or time!

Pathetic
Rest in peace pretty one

What do you expect from a society where everyone carry gun. Any slight quarrel like this they keep threatening shoot. Why not look the man in the eye and exchange blows fight and end beef right there man to man. Woman to woman.
Black Americans killing their fellow black &
Mentally deranged white boys mass shooting at malls.
Pathetic and weak men

Abeg nah Canada sure pass.

Indeed. The thing is, he who writes the story, controls the narrative. Let’s hope the killer is apprehended and the family overcomes this period of despair unbroken.

80 percent of homicides in the US are committed by black Americans and this will be same thing ..when the culprit is caught soon I will remind you here...this is how people like you argued with me when I said the Go Kada chap must have been killed by a black and one week later I was vindicated.... Black people are mindlessly violent like for example I say something and the next thing you talk about is me being arrested ...can you see the quality of mind in you ? Unfortunately for you I am not somebody to be arrested and with time it will be clear

Mass shooting is different from homicide , homicide encompasses all killings in the use ..God to Chicago and see how many people are killed by their fellow blacks daily
