Gunmen on Sunday killed the Chief of Numana in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Malam Gambo Makama, and his wife.
It was gathered that one of the Chief's sons was also injured and his residence burnt to ashes during the attack at Gwantu town.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Mukhtar Hussaini Aliyu, confirmed the attack.
Aliyu said, "The Police Command received the report of the attack around midnight on Sunday."
"The assailants fled before the police arrived the scene, hence no arrest had been made."
The PPRO, however, appealed for calm, assuring that the command was doing everything possible to get to the root of the matter.
