Zakka Magaji, senior special assistant on Christian religious affairs to Bala Mohammed, governor of Bauchi, has been attacked by gunmen.

Confirming the incident at a media briefing on Friday, Ahmed Wakil, spokesperson of Bauchi police command, said seven gunmen attacked Magaji in his residence on Thursday night.

He said three empty shells of 7.6mm ammunition were recovered by the police at the scene, adding that while the governor’s aide was unhurt, one person in the residence sustained injuries.

“The command received the distress call at about 1am that the house was under attack by some armed men, numbering about seven,” Wakil said.


“On receipt of the distress call, the commissioner of police, Umar Sanda, directed the police e-division to act immediately.

“The DPO led his team with other tactical commanders, such as rapid response squad B-division, for quick intervention, while the armed men ran into the bush.”

He said the police had intensified patrol in the area in their efforts to track and arrest the gunmen.


Wakil also assured residents that the command would do everything to secure the lives and properties of the citizens.

He also urged the people to provide timely information on suspected criminals to security agencies for prompt action.
