Oct 30, 2016 – Assassins Murder Kogi Fulanis Leader In Lokoja
The Chairman of Kogi State Fulani Association, Alhaji Ibrahim Abubarkar Jalido was murdered yesterday by some unknown gunmen suspected to be assassins.
Alhaji Jalido was murdered at his residence at about 2.05am by suspected assassins who riddled his body with bullets.
The incident occurred at Road 3 of Peace Community along the Ganaja-Ajaokuta road in Lokoja.
Fear-stricken residents of Peace community said the gunmen, numbering about 10, may have used a detour to beat police operatives attached to C Division Lokoja.
The gunmen, according to them, used an unfamiliar route to gain access to the residence.
A resident, who spoke under anonymity, pointed fingers at Fulani herdsmen.
A neighbour of the deceased said they saw strange faces within the vicinity earlier in the day, not knowing they had evil intentions.
He said the deceased, survived by two wives and children, was macheted severally and shot in different parts of his body.
The deceased has been buried according to Islamic rites.
