He told Aruwan who was on the visit in company with the Garrison Commander of One Mechanised Division of the Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Olusegun Abai, that the bandits trailed the Fulani leader from the mosque down to his house which was about 20 metres away.

According to Garba, the gunmen also shot sporadically in the community, creating panic among residents who scampered for safety before the arrival of security operatives who later brought the situation under control.

In his remarks, the commissioner described the attack on the Fulani leader as a case of an assassination attempt by bandits for working with the government towards eliminating banditry and kidnapping in Kajuru LGA.
