Suspected assassins on Tuesday shot dead two chieftains of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Maiduguri.

The deceased are Alhaji Ibrahim Usman Gula, PDP zonal vice chairman of Southern Borno Senatorial District; and Hajiya Gambo, the PDP women leader for Shehuri ward in Maiduguri metropolis.

A source who craved anonymity said that the deceased were trailed to their respective residences by the gunmen, before they were shot dead before their wife and husband.

He said: “they were killed in cold blood near the Maiduguri International Hotel (MAIH) and Shehuri ward of the metropolis, before the Joint Task Force (JTF) and police cordoned the areas for over an hour prevent further attacks and killings. The bodies of the slain party officials have already been buried on Tuesday, according to Islamic rites at the Gwange cemetery.”
