Gunmen have killed a Kaduna-based lawyer, Haro Gandu at his Tollgate residence, along the Kaduna-Abuja Expressway, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
He was killed on Sunday night when the gunmen broke into his residence, abducting his wife and son.
Timothy Gandu, a former Commissioner of Economic Planning and brother to the deceased, confirmed the incident on Monday.
The deceased was a staff of the State Ministry of Justice.
The brother said the gunmen broke into the house by forcefully pulling down one of the windows.
They first shot his brother in the shoulder and as he attempted to escape, he was shot in the back, he said.
“It is the same narrative of criminality everywhere. Bandits invading communities and breaking into homes, killing, and abducting people,” the former commissioner said.
Kaduna State Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, was still struggling to confirm the incident as at the time of filing this report.
