Nigerian beauty queen PhD student, 24, shot dead outside her home in the US

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

Najeebat Sule, 24, who was known to her loved ones as Najee, was killed shortly before 6pm on March 12, just 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.


'I can’t think of anything that would make anyone want to kill her,' Sule's close friend Habibat Magaji, told the Philadelphia Inquirer. 

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 gray 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,' said the father. 'He ran back to his car.'

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 was going to be home. 

'All of my children have been crying every day because of their big sister. They really miss her. I miss my daughter,' she said.

Najeet is survived by her parents and two sisters. 

'She was very talented, smart and funny,' one of her siblings told 6abc.  

The family are currently staying at an undisclosed location over unspecified concerns for their safety. 

Sule and her family immigrated to Philadelphia from Nigeria in the early 2000s.

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.
