Sources told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the gunmen stormed the residence of Yunus at Ungwan Dosa area of Kaduna metropolis at about 7:45 p.m., and shot him dead.
Sources in the area said Yunus had finished the prayers in a nearby mosque and had just entered his house to break the fast when the gunmen stormed the house and shot him dead.
Some staff of the newspaper outfit, who opted for anonymity said no single item was taken away from the residence of the victim.
