Some gunmen have reportedly killed one of the domestic drivers of the Emir of Birnin Gwari in Kaduna State.

The driver identified as Nasiru Sarkin Zango was said to have been shot dead while driving along the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari expressway on Saturday.

It was gathered that the gunmen also set the Toyota Hilux van he was driving ablaze.

It was further learnt that the incident occurred around 3 pm on Saturday when Nasiru was returning to Birnin Gwari having arrived in Kaduna earlier that day to service the vehicle.

Sources at the Emir’s palace revealed that the driver was alone in the vehicle when the incident occurred.

A source at the palace, who confirmed the incident, said Nasiru left Kaduna for Birnin Gwari around 2 pm, adding that the victim’s remains have been taken to Birnin Gwari town for burial.

The Kaduna State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, when contacted, further confirmed the incident, saying the police had sent its men including the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) to ascertain the situation.
