Suspected bandits have murdered a Kaduna State House of Assembly member, Rilwanu Gadagau following his kidnap along Kaduna-Zaria Road on Monday night.
Why it matters?
Mr. Rilwanu Gadagau, a former Vice-Chairman, Giwa local government and many others were kidnapped on Monday night while traveling the Kaduna-Zaria Road. This is another story of the unrest that exists in the Northwest part of the country.
A source close to the family told newsmen he was on a phone call with his friend Shehu Yunusa when he learned bandits were kidnapping right ahead of him and he was contemplating returning to Kaduna or continuing to Zaria. The source further added that he was abducted and killed on the way into the forest.
In the last six months, the northwest has lost two lawmakers to insecurity. In June, they killed Mohammed Ahmed just after he defected to the APC.
At the time of this report, there has been no official statement from the Kaduna State police.
