Bandits Abduct Swiss National, Nigerian In Ogun

Barely a day after armed men abducted the wife and baby of a former councillor in Zamfara, gunmen have killed another former councillor in the state.

Although police authorities in the state have yet to confirm the latest incident, an eyewitness gave an account of how Tukur Hassan was murdered.

A group of armed men invaded the residence of Tukur Hassan in the early hours of Thursday before he was shot dead, a source close to his family told newsmen.

The incident occurred at about 12am at Sabon Gida community in Bungudu Local Government Area of the state.

According to the source who preferred not to be named, the assailants trailed the former councillor to his residence where they asked him to turn his back at them.

“They later shot him dead and left,” he said. However, the assailants did not leave with anything or abduct anybody in the area.

Hassan was a former councillor who represented Sankalawa-Sabon Gida Ward in Bungudu.
