The Police spokesperson, Muhammad Shehu, said in a statement made available to journalists that Mr Zango was shot dead at his residence in Gusau this Friday.

“The Zamfara State Police Command wishes to confirm an incident of culpable homicide that occurred on 20th July, 2018 at the Gada Biyu Area in Gusau metropolis,” he stated.
