Some unknown gunmen have killed a 37-year-old man, identified as Mr Ishaku Musa, and a woman in her late thirties, identified as Mrs Laraba Alask.
According to reports, the victims were shot dead by gunmen at Matsirga village, Madakiya, in the Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The gunmen were said to have invaded the community at approximately 9:30 pm a few days ago and shot sporadically at harmless citizens, which resulted in the death of the two victims.
Close sources also revealed that two other persons were critically injured as a result of the attack. The two injured persons are currently in the hospital and are reportedly responding well to treatment.
The police are yet to make an official statement on the attack but former Kaduna State lawmaker, Shehu Sani, who was the senator representing Kaduna central, has called out Governor Nasir El-Rufai over the senseless killings.
“If you choose to negotiate with the bandits who kill our people, you must be ready to please and appease them every day; If you choose not to negotiate with the bandits, you must be equipped and ready to fight them every second,” he said.
Recall, a few days ago, in the Igabi Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, bandits attacked four communities, killing over 50 persons.
