Ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party Chairman in Batsari Local Government Area of Katsina State, Abdulhamid Sani Duburawa, has been murdered by bandits. Katsina State is where Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari hails from. The sad news was confirmed by the lawmaker representing Batsari constituency at the state House of Assembly, Hon. Jabiru Yauyau.
In a telephone interview with Thisday the lawmaker hinted that the bandits riding on motorcycles stormed the residence of the victim at Sabon-Garin Duburawa village in Ruma ward of the council area at about 12:47pm on Sunday. He said: “It is true, some bandits riding on motorcycles attacked our party chairman, Abdulhamid Sani Duburawa, at his hometown, Sabon-Garin Duburawa, and shot him severally and left.
“He was rushed to Batsari General Hospital for treatment but unfortunately for us he died. His body has been moved to his residence here in Batsari in preparation for burial.”
Yauyau called on security personnel to rekindle their efforts in tackling persistent attacks orchestrated by bandits in the area, saying “If not the bandits will finish us.” The police authorities in the state were yet to issue a statement at the time of filling this report.
