Babangida Damba, a former councillor of Tudun-Wada Gusau ward said that the incident occurred on Wednesday when gunmen invaded their residence at the Government Residential Quarter in Damba, shooting him and his 26-year-old wife.
According to “Channel Television” the gunmen who were about four started their operation from 12: 00 am shooting sporadically for over one hour, before leaving with his wife and son to an undisclosed location.
The victim’s husband said he put a distress call to the police immediately to come to his rescue but they did not show up until 3:00 am after the criminals had long gone with his wife and son.
Damba said he recovered 17 used ammunition and one live ammunition which the gunmen fired at the main door of the house to force it open to access the sitting room.
