Gunmen Kill PDP Treasurer, Kidnap Newlywed Couple

In a sorrowful twist of fate, suspected gunmen unleashed terror in Sokoto State on Friday night, claiming the life of Alhaji Nafi’u Tambari Dagawa, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Treasurer in Yabo Local Government area.

According to reports, the assailants, under the cover of darkness, raided Dagawa community around 2 am, brutally murdering the PDP chieftain at his residence. Shockingly, they also abducted a newlywed couple, presumably for ransom, leaving the community reeling from the unprecedented violence.

Amidst the chaos, several individuals sustained gunshot wounds, highlighting the magnitude of the attack and its devastating impact on the community. Alhaji Nafi’u Tambari Dagawa, fondly remembered for his philanthropic endeavors, particularly towards the less privileged, leaves behind a legacy of generosity and compassion that transcended political affiliations.

The news of his untimely demise has plunged the community into mourning, with many expressing sorrow over the loss of a beloved figure known for his selfless contributions to society. Despite the somber atmosphere, residents came together to honor the memory of the late PDP treasurer, paying their respects as he was laid to rest in his hometown of Dagawa on Saturday.

As the community grapples with grief, the Sokoto State Police Command has yet to issue a statement regarding the incident, leaving many questions unanswered and heightening concerns about security in the region. While the PDP spokesperson in the state, Alhaji Hassan Sahabi Sanyinnawal, confirmed the tragic event and the subsequent burial of the victim, calls for enhanced security measures resonate strongly in the wake of escalating violence across the country.

Indeed, the rising incidence of nefarious acts underscores the urgent need for proactive measures to safeguard communities and uphold law and order. It is imperative that government authorities prioritize the security sector, ensuring adequate training and resources for law enforcement personnel to effectively combat crime and protect citizens from harm. Only through concerted efforts and unwavering commitment to public safety can such senseless acts of violence be curbed, fostering a safer and more secure environment for all.
