The proprietor of New Edition Nursery and primary school and Winners Comprehensive High School in Jalingo, Taraba State Mr. Danlami Shamaki, has been shot dead by unknown gunmen on Sunday August 9.
The deceased was ambushed by a group of armed men between Danacha and Sabongida village in Gassol local government area of Taraba state while returning from Abuja where he went for a meeting with his aide and driver.
The gunmen reportedly used a water truck to block the road which forced his driver to maneuver past it. However after Shamaki ordered his driver to stop in order to show sympathy and also check if the truck pusher was hurt, the armed men opened fire targeting the proprietor only.
His corpse has been deposited at the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre in Jalingo.
