Unknown gunmen Friday night, killed the General Manager of the Kaduna based weekly publication, The New Democrat newspaper, Malam Ustaz Yunus.

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.

Some staff of the newspaper outfit, who opted for anonymity said no single item was taken away from the residence of the victim.
