The incident which happened on Sunday night claimed the life of Gandu is said to be a worker with the Kaduna State Ministry of Justice until his death.
A former Commissioner for Economic Planning and brother to the decease, Timothy Gandu, confirmed the incident saying the hoodlums broke into his house through one of the windows and shot him twice.
Timothy said the gunmen shot his brother on the shoulder as they entered the house, adding that they shot him at the back as he attempted to escape.
“It is the same narrative of criminality everywhere. Bandits have been invading communities and breaking into homes, killing and abducting people.
“They came to the house on Sunday night, pulled down the window and gained access. They first shot him on the shoulder. When he wanted to escape, they followed him and shot him on the back and he died. The gunmen abducted his wife and son,” Gandu said.
When contacted, the Kaduna State Command’s Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Jalige, promised to get back to newsmen, but he had not done as of the time of filing this report.
This is coming one week after suspected kidnappers abducted a policewoman, her daughter and four others at Janruwa, Patrick Yakowa way area of Kaduna State.
