The bandits shot Mamman in the chest as he prevented them from taking his kinsman.

“It was the sporadic gun shot that even attracted the attention of the villagers till about 4:00 am this morning, when it was discovered that bandits killed one of the herders and whisked away one other person,” Shehu said. 

Usman said that Mamman had been buried. 

“But as I speak to you, a contact is yet to be established from the abductors of the man,” Usman said. 

Abuja has been enveloped in rumours and news of abductions in recent times.
