Gunmen have shot and killed a 46-year-old tanker driver, Usman Zakari in Anyigba, Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi State.

The incident occurred last Saturday near the Central Mosque on Obeya Street in the Anyigba town.

A witness said the gunmen drove in a bus into the family compound of the driver around 4pm and shot him in front of the house.

It was learnt that Zakari was shot in front of the same house where a son of the Imam of Anyigba, a 25-year-old graduate, Yusuf Labaran, was killed last December.



The state’s police command’s spokesman, SP William Aya, confirmed the incident, saying, “One Mustapha Zakari was reported to have lodged a complaint of the killing of his younger brother, Usman Zakari, by gunmen,” adding that the command had ordered investigation into the case.
