Ahead of 2023 polls, gunmen have struck in Katsina, President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state, snuffing out the Commissioner for Science and Technology, Dr Rabe Nasir.

Rabe Nasir was killed on Wednesday night in his house located at Fatima Shema Quarters, Katsina.

Rabe Nasir, 61, a former House of Representatives member, was also a staff of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He had served as the Special Adviser on anti-corruption in the state.

Confirming the tragic incident, Katsina Police Commissioner, Alhaji Sanusi Buba, said: “The unfortunate incident happened last night.”

However, a source said the gunmen must have taken advantage of the Commissioner staying alone to carry out the operation.

“They killed him in the process and locked up the body in the room where we discovered it today (Thursday),” a resident said.

Meanwhile, grief-stricken Governor Aminu Masari and other top government officials have visited the house of the late Commissioner.

Police have yet to react to the assassination of the Commissioner.
