Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has commiserated with the family of a traditional ruler who was murdered alongside his son by heavily armed men on Tuesday morning, November 17.
It was reported that the yet to be identified gunmen this morning stormed Ma-zakki, a community in Zango Kataf Local Government Area of the state and gunned down the district head of Gidan Zaki, Haruna Kuye and his son.
Bibian Anekwe News learnt that wife of the late district head was left with severe injuries from machete cuts while her daughter sustained a wound on her finger from a stray gunshot.
Confirming the incident in a statement to newsmen a few moments ago, the state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, revealed that the act was carried out by about five men wielding AK-47 rifles and machetes, who also tried to burn the house and a vehicle.
According to Samuel, “troops in collaboration with other security agencies are carrying out investigations and trailing the assailants.”
He added, “Governor Nasir el-Rufai has condemned the killings as evil and violation of the sanctity of the human lives by enemies of peace who must be fished out and made to face the wrath of the law.
“The governor who condoled the Kuye family and the Atyap Traditional Council, prayed for the repose of the souls of the district head and his son.”
Meanwhile, it was alleged that police operatives in Kano on Saturday night shot one Abubakar Isah Banupe and Ibrahim Sulaiman Mainasara, Bibian Anekwe News reports.
