Bandits assassinated Alhaji Sagir Hamidu, an ex-governorship candidate in Zamfara State.

On Sunday, he was slain by bandits who blocked the Kaduna-Abuja Highway and opened fire on motorists.

According to the Daily Trust, the incident happened around 3:30 p.m. on the busy highway near Rijana.

Rijana, a former FCT Director of Protocol and a candidate for the governorship of Zamfara State, was killed in the event, according to eyewitnesses.

A Facebook user, Kabeer Gambo Rigasa, wrote: “ALHAMDULILLAH, ALHAMDULILLAH, Escaped Being Kidnapped Along Abuja To Kaduna Road Around 3:30pm Today.”

Other eyewitnesses said the bandits had operated unchallenged for over an hour.
