Unidentified gunmen suspected to be Islamic terrorists have reportedly killed the zonal coordinator of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) for Kebbi, Sokoto and Zamfara states, Alhaji Mohammed Kudu Mawa.
It was gathered that Mawa was shot dead along Lapai-Lambata Road, Niger State in the late hours of Sunday by the bandits.
It was learnt that the victim was on his way back to his Kaduna residence from Lafiaji, Kwara State when he was ambushed by the gunmen.
Meanwhile, efforts made to get the Niger State Police Command for comments on the incident were unsuccessful as the Command’s spokesman, Wasiu Abiodun, did not answer his calls.
Meanwhile, Heebraheem M Marclo who posted information about the killing of Mawa on his Facebook page wrote, “MDL commiserates with the people of Lafiagi over the sudden demise of Alhaji Mohammed Kudu Mawa FIRS; Describes the death as a rude shock
