Gunmen have killed Sam Zadock, spokesman of the Adamawa chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Addressing reporters in Yola, capital of the state, on Wednesday, Abdullahi Prambe, secretary of the party in Adamawa, described the incident as a “big shock’’.
“We were expecting him for a meeting yesterday but he didn’t show up; he called me but the network wasn’t good only for us to hear that he was killed in an attack,” Prambe said.
He called on the government to do something about the killings in the state.
Speaking on the incident, a youth leader in the area, Paul Turaki, said Zadock was killed with four others travelling in the same car in an ambush around Barre village in Demsa local government area.
In a statement, Texas Chukwu, an army spokesman, said 10 suspected gunmen involved in the attack were killed while six others were arrested.
