The District Head of Barakallahu Alhaji Muhammad Abdullahi, who confirmed the incident also added that the Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) of Rigachikun and Barnawa who are residents of the community have visited the scene of the crime.
“This is simply a case of assassination because they went to only the victim’s house, killed him and left the community, they did not take anything in his house nor did they attack the guard and his wife.
