Gunmen suspected to be armed bandits have killed two staff of Federal Polytechnic, Kaura Namoda in Zamfara State.
The gunmen who stormed the resident of the deceased at a low-cost area of Kaura Namoda in Zamfara State shot dead Usama Nazifi, 37 years old and Bashiru Muhammad, 39 years old, all staff with federal polytechnic in the state.
An eyewitness told Tribune Online during the funeral prayer in Kaura Namoda that, the bandits jumped into the Nazifi’s House asking him to open his room, but he resorted to shouting, calling for assistance.
He said the hoodlums went back, Nazifi called his neighbour, Bashiru and they went out of their houses discussing the issue not knowing that the bandits were still in the area hiding in an uncompleted building, and they subsequently opened fire on them.
When contacted, the Rector, Federal Polytechnic, Kaura Namoda, Yahaya Muhammad Bande described the attack as unfortunate, barbaric and condemnable.
