Some suspected bandits struck in Mairuwa village, Faskari local government area of Katsina State, on Saturday night, killing worshippers observing Ramadan prayer.

At least two persons were shot dead while another sustained injury during the attack.

Daily Trust gathered that one of the deceased persons was a prominent politician identified as Alhaji Lado.

He was suspected to be the prime target of the assailants.

A source who described the deceased as a businessman, politician and large-scale farmer, said the victim was killed when he refused to take orders from his murderers.
