Gunmen on Friday night, murdered Malam Ustaz Yunus, the General Manager of a Kaduna-based media organisation, The New Democrat.

The New Democrat, a Weekly Newspaper outfit, is owned by Sen. Mukhtar Aruwa.

Sources told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the gunmen stormed the residence of Yunus at Ungwan Dosa area of Kaduna metropolis at about 7.45 p.m., and shot him dead.

Some staff of the newspaper outfit, who did not want their names mentioned, said no single item was taken away from the residence of the victim.

“We suspect a political undertone to his killing because the killers did not take anything from the house.

“They just stormed the house, killed him, and disappeared,” said one of the staff.

Kaduna State Police Command’s spokesperson, Aminu Lawal, confirmed the incident.

He said investigations had commenced on the matter. (NAN)
