Gunmen Kill Kaduna Village Head, Set House Ablaze

Gunmen have killed Malam Kabiru Mohammed, the village head of Marke in Dandamisa Ward, Makarfi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Daily Trust gathered that the gunmen, suspected to be hired killers, entered the residence of the victim at about 12:30 am on Thursday and sent everyone out of the compound.

They reportedly began searching for Malam Kabiru who was hiding inside the ceiling alongside his elder brother, Tukur Mohammed.

According to a member of the community who pleaded for anonymity, the victim was later discovered by the gunmen who slaughtered him and set the house ablaze.

Reacting to the incident, the councilor of Dandamisa Ward, Alhaji Aminu Sani Marke, said the body of the late village head could not be recovered as the house was burnt down.

He said, “The gunmen spent about one hour operating in the village and went away with valuables worth millions of naira.”

The late Kabiru Muhammmad, age 30 years, was turbaned as the village head of Marke in 2018.

Efforts to reach the Kaduna State Police Command to comment on the matter proved abortive at the time of filing this report.
