Unknown gunmen Wednesday night killed the Minority Leader of Gombe State House of Assembly, Alhaji Abdulhamid Waziri Doho, raining bullets on him.
According to a statement by a close friend of the deceased, Malam Adamu Yakubu, who spoke to newsmen shortly after the incident, “six strange looking men arrived the residence of the lawmaker, opposite Gombe State University, at around 8:30 pm local time and shot him at close range.”
He further said that three of the gun men immediately went into the sitting room of the late Waziri, where they met him and rained several shots on him, leaving him in a pool of his own blood. His daughter, who rushed to the sitting room to find out what happened, managed to escape with a gunshot wound on her left arm.
When contacted on telephone, the state Police Public Relations Officer DSP Fwaje Atajiri told newsmen that he was still putting together, his facts on the incident.
