Gunmen kill top PDP chieftain, 4 others

Gunmen suspected to be armed robbers yesterday intercepted and killed five people including a chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Zamfara State, Alhaji Abdulhadi Saidu.

A resident, Alhaji Saidu Maishanu Gusau, told Daily Trust that the PDP chieftain was shot in the neck after his vehicle ran into the road block mounted by the gunmen along Funtua-Gusau road.

“They were coming back from Kaduna where they held a meeting. The driver survived the attack but receiving treatment at a medical facility in Tsafe Local Government Area of the state,” he added.

Late Alhaji Saidu, aged 38, was a graduate of Usman Danfodio University Sokoto and Zamfara State coordinator of the Gbenga Daniel campaign for PDP National chairmanship. He is survived by a wife and child.
