Bandits kill Kaduna Assembly member



A member of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Hon. Rilwanu Aminu Gadagau, has been killed by bandits who attacked him in the early hours of Wednesday.

The death of Gadagau who represented the Giwa West Constituency in the House, was confirmed by Shehu Sani, a former Senator who represented Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, via his Twitter handle.

In a series of tweets, Sani initially called for prayers for a “member of the State House of Assembly” without disclosing details.

However, in a follow-up tweet minutes later, Sani noted that Gadagau was shot by bandits while on his way to Kaduna and had given up the ghost.
