Ex-footballer and former popular Kaduna North local government chairman, Hon. Sadiq Mamam Lagos, and his family members have been reportedly attacked by bandits.
A daughter and daughter-in-law reportedly sustained gunshots injuries during the bandits’ attacks Friday night on their way along Abuja-Kaduna highway.
Sources reports alleged that Mamam Lagos’ daughter and daughter-in-law were on admission in a hospital.
“He and his son escaped the bullets. They were at the front seat. The car was shot from behind; that’s why the occupants at the back seat were hit,” the sources alleged.
“I just spoke with Mamman Lagos and confirm that it is his children but they are responding to treatment,” they added.
Kaduna Police spokesman, Muhammed Jalige, promised to get back to journalists when confirmed.
