Gunmen has killed an assistant stadium manager in Plateau State.

The source further disclosed that the assailants came in two tricycles (popularly known as Keke NAPEP) and went straight to where Garuba was standing and shot him at close range.
“Immediately they came out of the tricycles, the six of them went straight for Isa Garuba and shot him severely at close range before they zoomed off,” said the source.
It was gathered that the incident caused pandemonium within the vicinity as people scampered for safety on seeing Garuba in a pool of his blood.
