Unknown gunmen on Sunday nighttime hacked down proprietor of Winners Comprehensive High School (WCHS) in Jalingo metropolis, Taraba State, Danlami Shamaki.

The late Shamaki also reportedly headquartered the famous New Edition Primary School, Jalingo.

The news of his dying came when the kingdom authorities used to be fashioning out plans to clamp down on hoodlums whose things to do persisted to drag the kingdom backwards.

The bandits were stated to have shattered Shamaki’s vehicle with gunshots in Dan-Ancha village of Gassol Council.

The Guardian gathered that the late educationist was returning to the nation capital from Abuja when he was killed.

Confirming the incident, the widow, Juliana Shamaki, wondered what warranted the assassination of her husband.

Speaking at some point of the flag-off of the Nigeria Army Super Camp IV in Faskari Council yesterday, Masari said the village security committees would be revived to work with the monarchs in the 361 political wards in the state.

He lamented that the 1976 council reforms, which usurped the features of regular rulers, led to the cave in of village security committees.

The governor introduced that his administration would go thru the archives to reconstitute the committees and repair security at the grassroots.

The General Officer Commanding (GOC) three Division of the Nigerian Army, Maj-Gen. Nuhu Angbazo, described revival of village safety committees as a top strategy to efficaciously handle criminality.

He, however, counseled Masari for synergising with the military and other protection organizations in the fight against banditry in the state.
