“A group of six gunmen driving in a bus with no plate number trailed the lawmaker to his house and shot him dead as he was about to come out of his car outside his house,’ the source said.
“No arrest has been made yet.”
The motive for the killing was not yet clear.
Boko Haram has committed many such attacks, but political vendettas have also been carried out in Nigeria’s northeast and elsewhere.
Boko Haram has attacked Potiskum a number of times.
Each of Nigeria’s 36 states has a governor as its chief executive plus a local legislature. — AFP.
