Hon. Ishaya Bakano, the deputy leader of the Song Local Government Legislative Council in Adamawa State, was reportedly shot and killed in his home by unidentified gunmen.

According to DSP Suleiman Nguroje, the state police command’s spokesperson, who confirmed Bakano’s death in a statement, the police were notified of the politician’s home invasion at around 1am in the morning on July 23.

According to reports, the gunmen shot sporadically and abandoned Bakano in a pool of blood.

The politician was brought to the hospital, where it was confirmed that he had died, according to a police spokesperson.

Nguroje also revealed that the police are actively looking for the alleged shooters.

This happened after Sunny, the actor Emma Buchi’s personal helper, brutally killed the rising Nollywood star in Asaba, the capital of the Delta State.

On Tuesday, July 12, his friend Melody Obia posted on Facebook that he had passed away.

Melody claims that the actor’s decomposing body was discovered in his residence recently, and it is claimed that his personal assistant killed him and took all of his possessions.

She posted images of the accused murderer of the actor and urged anyone with knowledge on his whereabouts to get in touch with her, the victim’s family, or the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).
