Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase

The wife and four children of a former chairman of the traders union of Birnin Kebbi central market, Dandare Maibulawus, were slaughtered in the early hours of Monday in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State.

A brother to Mr. Maibulawus, Ibrahim Shehu, said the killing occurred around 4:30am when the unknown assailants stormed his brother’s house at Bayan Kara’a suburb in Birnin Kebbi.

“My brother travelled to Cotonuo, Benin Republic when the incident occurred,” Mr. Shehu said.

The state commissioner of police, Yakubu Jibril, confirmed the incident.

He appealed to residents of the area to assist the police with information that would lead to the arrest of the assailants.

He also called them to report any suspicious movement of persons around the area.

Speaking when he paid a condolence visit to the family, the state governor, Atiku Bagudu, expressed dismay over the killing.

He described the killings as “sad, bad and a dastardly act”.

The governor, therefore, called on the security agents to intensify investigation and search for the suspects.
