By Akeem Badru
The Chairman, Miyyetti Allah in Gwagwalada Abuja has been shot dead.
The gory incidence took place late last week. He was killed by unknown armed men on Sunday.
The armed men attacked Adamu Aliyu at Daku Village in Abuja. He was shot dead.
Four others were also killed.
The Secretary, MACBAN, Mohammed Usman, confirmed the incident. He said the murder has been reported to the local police authority.
Irohinoodua was informed that the killing was carried out by masked men.
Police authorities are currently investigating the incidence.
A resident of Gwagwalada where the killing took place told Irohinoodua that the community fear the killing might spark reprisal attacks.
Security experts suspect the killing may not be unconnected with the arms race in the North East between cattle owners and rustlers sometimes taking ethnic colouration
