 Bandits Kill Emir Of Kontagora’s Son


Bandits have killed the eldest son of the Emir of Kontagora,
Bashir Namaska, at his father’s farm alongside others working on the farm at
Masuga village along the Kontagora-Rijau Road in Niger State.

The traditional ruler’s son was the Sardauna of Kontagora
and had been holding the fort for his father, the Sarkin Sudan, who was
reported to have been sick for some months.

He was said to have been shot by the bandits on Thursday and
later rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead on arrival.

Sources said the bandits also abducted some persons on their
way out of the town in the north-central region of the country.

In his reaction, Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello,
described the death of the prince as heart-breaking and devastating and
condoled with the emir and the people of Kontagora Emirate over the loss.

Governor Bello prayed to God to forgive all the shortcomings
of the late prince and give his father, the people of the emirate, and his
close associates the fortitude to bear the loss.

Born in 1979, late Bashir served Kontagora Emirate in many
capacities, among which were the District Head of Kontagora I and Sardaunan
Kontagora, the positions he held until his demise.

He was also the Director-General of the Niger State Public
Procurement Board between 2013 and 2015.
