An unknown assailant has killed a father, Malam Nuhu, and son, Nasir, in the Garko Local Government Area of Kano State.

Nuhu was said to have been beheaded by the assailant in Tumpapi village – few kilometers away from Garko town, at about 2.00 am early on Monday.

A relation of the deceased informed that it was the noise and shouts for help that attracted them to the house, only to discover that the assailant matched Nasir who was trying to save his father from the attacker.

“Incidentally, this attack on Malam Nuhu was not the first, as the attacker was at the house about two months ago warning the deceased that he was going to set the house ablaze completely,” the relation said.

The deceased’s relation added that the duo had been buried around 9.00 am on Monday.

He noted that the District Head, DPO, and the vigilante in the area have promised to investigate the incident.

The state Police spokesman, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, was yet to confirm the incident.
