Bandits have invaded Gwagwalada Area Council of Abuja and shot dead the chairman of the Miyyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) of the council, Adamu Aliyu.
Adamu Aliyu was said to have been killed alongside four others near Daku village in Dobi ward of the council on Thursday.
Secretary of MACBAN, Mohammed Usman, who confirmed the incident to our reporter on Sunday, said three persons were abducted, while three others who sustained gun shot wounds are receiving treatment at the University of Teaching Hospital in Gwagwalada.
He said the incident happened last Thursday, around 5 pm, when the late MACBAN chairman alongside others were retuning from Izom market in Niger state in Dyna truck, while the bandits suddenly emerged from the bush and opened fire on the truck. According to him, the bandits shattered the windscreen of the truck, which was conveying the late MACBAN and some passengers.
