The victims were Usman Gula (who was the PDP’s vice chairman for Southern Borno), and Hajia Gamboa, who served as the party’s women’s leader for Shehuri ward in Maiduguri. Reports have it that both officials were killed by gunmen at their respective homes.
Barely a week, these PDP officials hosted President Goodluck Jonathan, during his official visit to the troubled state, under tight security.
With this development, other PDP stalwarts might be gripped with fear as to their fate in the troubled and volatile state.
No group have claimed responsibility, although it is suspected to be the handiwork of the Boko Haram militant insurgence.
