A 2019 governorship aspirant under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara state Sagir Gusau has been shot dead along Abuja-Kaduna highway by bandits on Sunday.

Bandits also reportedly abducted some travellers same day.

Although the Police Public Relations Officer in Kaduna could not be reached on inquiry, locals near Katari village told journalists that at about 2 pm, the bandits wielding dangerous weapons blocked the Abuja-Kaduna highway for over 60 minutes and went away with some travellers.
