Intelligence official, four family members killed in Nigeria

“Unknown attackers brandishing machetes stormed the home of a senior intelligence official and hacked him and four members of his family to death in an apparent targeted killing, police said Tuesday.

Two other children managed to escape the attack, though one was wounded, according to police.

‘The man Garba Bello, his wife and three children were murdered in cold blood around 1:30 am on Monday,’ Kano state police spokesman Baba Mohammed told AFP.

‘It was a clear case of assassination as nothing was taken away from his home.'”
