The General Manager of New Democrat, a Kaduna-based weekly newspaper, has been killed by gunmen in Kaduna, North-West Nigeria.
The gunmen stormed the residence of Ustaz Yunus, at Ungwan Dosa around 7:45 p.m. on Friday night, colleagues said.
“We suspect a political undertone to his killing because the killers did not take anything from the house. They just stormed the house, killed him and disappear,” a member of staff of New Democrat said.
The Kaduna Police spokesperson, Aminu Lawal, confirmed the murder. He said the police have begun investigation into the killing.
