Bandits Kill Yusuf Labaran, Son Of Chief Imam In Kogi

Some bandits have on December 25, killed Mallam Yusuf Labaran, the son of Ustaz Musa Yahaya, the Chief Imam of Anyigba in Kogi State. 

 It was gathered that the assailants used a Toyota Sienna SUV with no registration number to carry out the attack.

 The attackers reportedly opened fire on people at Agudoko Junction in Anyigba, in the Dekina Local Government Area of the state, killing Labaran.

 Speaking to SaharaReporters, a source in the community said on Sunday that the incident happened around 6.30 pm on Saturday, Christmas Day, as the victims were preparing for evening prayer. 

 “Just yesterday, unknown gunmen in their numbers killed Mallam Yusuf Labaran, a son of the Chief Imam of Anyigba at Agudoko junction in Anyigba, Kogi State. 

 “The unknown gunmen came in a Sienna space bus vehicle without number and opened fire on innocent people sitting down in the company of friends around 6:30 pm preparing for evening prayer, the killing in Anyigba has become a norm with authority looking the other way,” the source said. 

The source added that the community has become a hot bed for killings. 

“Anyigba is becoming so scary by the day. Blood is flowing every now and then without even a single person figuring out why, how, and what exactly had gone wrong that triggered such a situation.” 

 When contacted, William Aya, the spokesperson for the state police command told reporters that he was yet to hear of the development.
