His colleague at the FMC Gusau, Dr. Kabir Sada described the situation as unfortunate and urged security operatives to unmask the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
“When he came to Gusau, he was residing in his house alone, because he was yet to bring his family to stay with him and some criminal elements went and assassinated him for reasons known to them,” he said.
