Gunmen on Saturday killed a Yobe-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Goni Aisami-Gashua at Jajimaji, the headquarters of Karasuwa native authorities council of the state.
The cleric was mentioned to be travelling from Gashua to Kano when he was adopted in a bus by the attackers.
Some Gashua residents informed Channels Tv that the incident occurred round 10am at Jajimaji, a distance of lower than 30 kilometers away from Gashua, the hometown of the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
Police spokesman within the state, DSP Dungus Abdulkarim, in a phone dialog with Channels mentioned suspects wielding AK-47 rifles have been arrested and are in police custody.
Gashua has been probably the most peaceable communities within the state, even on the peak of the Boko Haram insurgency.
