How gunmen kidnap and kill native doctor, security guard in Nasarawa

Unidentified gunmen kidnapped and later killed  a renowned traditional herbalist, Dr. Nakowa Danist with his security guard in Moro area of Akwanga Local Government of Nasarawa State.

The incident, which occurred on Thursday last week at about 2am was said to have lasted for three hours.

It was learnt that the unknown gunmen stormed Moro village and started shooting sporadically into the air, scaring the residents of the area away before taking their victim to an unknown destination.

A source in the area, who did want his name in print informed our correspondent that  Nakowa and his driver were on their way to Abuja when the assailants ambushed them, killing the driver on the spot and whisked away the native doctor to an unknown destination. They later dumped the corpse of their victim in the gutter.

Further findings by our correspondent indicated that the victim had since been under threat by yet to be identified politicians in the state.

The Nasarawa State House of Assembly on Wednesday directed that all the heads of security agencies in the state should appear before the standing committee on security to explain efforts being made to check insecurity across the thirteen local government councils of the state.

The directive followed the motion raised by the member representing Akwanga constituency, Mr. Kasim Mohammed Kasim, over the alleged killing of the prominent herbalist and his security guard.

Confirming the incident to Saturday Punch in a telephone interview, the commissioner of police, Nasarawa State command, Mr. Abubakar Bello Sadiq, said the command was aware of the incident.

According to him, the command was on the trail of the suspects, adding that they would want to make the ongoing investigation public, assuring the people of the state that those behind the act would be arrested.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
