GUNMEN suspected to be kidnappers have killed a Kaduna-based lawyer, Haro Gandu, while his wife and son were abducted from their resident at Tollgate, along the Kaduna-Abuja Expressway, in the Chikun Local Government Area.
The incident, which claimed the life of Gandu, a staff of the State Ministry of Justice, happened when the gunmen broke into his home on Sunday night.
Timothy Gandu, a former Commissioner of Economic Planning and brother to the deceased, confirmed the incident on Monday.
He said, “They came to the house on Sunday night, pulled down the window and gained access. They first shot him in the shoulder; he wanted to escape, they followed him and shot him in the back and he died. They abducted his wife and son.”
When contacted, the Kaduna State Command’s Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Jalige, promised to get back to our correspondent but he had not done as of the time of filing this report.
