The Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State, Samuel Aruwan disclosed this in a statement at the weekend.

He explained that the  bandits moved straight to Isah’s residence, and in what appeared to be a pre-meditated murder, shot him dead and left the location without taking any item or hostages during the raid.

A struggle ensued between the duo and the kidnappers, and while Mr Audu was able to escape, the kidnappers shot Mr Abu dead.

Five persons have been arrested in connection with the killing, as security agencies continued to investigate the incident.

Reacting to the development, the Governor of the State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, condemned the incident and prayed for the repose of the souls of the slain Cleric and Community leader.

He also conveyed his heartfelt condolences to their families and encouraged residents of the State that his administration is committed to deal with banditry.
