No fewer than five persons were killed by gunmen on motor bike Tuesday evening in Kano, capital of Nigeria’s north western state of Kano, where gunmen attacked the city’s monarch, Alhaji Ado Bayero Saturday, killing five persons.

The latest attack took place in Dakata axis in the city. It happened around 6p.m.

And it came just some few hours after the state acting governor, Engr.Abdullahi Umar Ganduje declaring as illegal the operation of commercial motorcylists in the state from Thursday, 24 January.

Tension and apprehension have taken a toll in the comercial city since last Saturday after the attack on Emir Ado Bayero’s convoy claiming at least six lives.

The Emir and his two wounded sons were flown to the United Kingdom last Sunday for medical treatment.

Though Police sources described the Dakata attack as armed robbery, residents of the area said
they heard several gun shots.

“I can confirm to you that gunmen on motorbikes opened fire on a group of people playing draft. I counted five dead bodies and several others were wounded,” said a resident.

There were no comments yet from the police and the JTF.

    BEFORE “OKADA”, PEOPLE WERE FINDING THEIR WAYS TO WHEREVER THEY NEED TO GO. HENCE, DEFINITELY AFTER “OKADA”, PEOPLE WILL FIND THEIR WAYS. RECORDS SHOW THAT “OKADA” WERE USED IN MOST VIOLENT CRIMES IN THE COUNTRY.
    LET US BAN “OKADA” THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, AND BEFORE WE CAN DO THAT, THE POLICE SHOULD RANDOMLY STOP AND SEARCH “OKADAS”

    THE BAN IS GOOD. BUT I THINK ISLAM IS ABOUT TO ERASE ISLAM, AND ONCE THIS IS ACHIEVED THERE WILL BE PEACE ALL OVER THE WORLD

    It is not about erasing Islam, they are only killing those who have betrayed them.

    They all cow heads, they stink – Muslims.

    The the typical Yoruba muslims also they have deep rooted inferiority complex, which make them act hostile in everything.

    The religion is not worth humanity. The purpose of religion is to serve God and build peaceful humanity.

    What a waster religion? Let the wise think well. You would not loose anything, they make you believe they would stop giving you economic activities if you disown the faith.

    Let me ask simple question? who are the richest people globally, Christians and Jews!
