Alhaji Sagir Hamidu, an APC governorship aspirant in Zamfara in the 2019 governorship election has been killed by unknown gunmen on Kaduna-Abuja highway. According to a family source, he was shot dead on Sunday evening.

It was gathered from the deceased’s elder brother, Kabiru Hamidu, that Sagir was killed near Abuja while he was returning from where he had gone to spend the weekend. Kabiru who said the family members were still gathering details of what happened from the authorities and possible eye witnesses explained that details could only be made available by Monday [today].

Sagir Hamidu, an Abuja-based businessman and former director in the federal civil service, aspired for the governorship of Zamfara under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2011 but lost at the party’s primary election.

He later defected to the APC and vied for the governorship position in 2019 but was allegedly short-changed by the former governor Abdulaziz Yari-led APC in the state from where he joined seven other aspirants to form the G-8 which protested and fought the Yari group up to the Supreme Court.
