“I saw the guy shooting my daughter. He shot the last round and I pursued him. He ran back to his car,” he said.
Najeebat was rushed to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital, where she was pronounced dead about 30 minutes later.
“I can’t think of anything that would make anyone want to kill her,” Najeebat’s close friend Habibat Magaji, told the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Magaji was among the last people to have seen Najeebat alive before she was shot.
The family are currently staying at an undisclosed location over unspecified concerns for their safety.
