Leakblast learned that the victims were the Special Adviser to the Governor on Community Development and Social Inclusion, Mr. Hamza Mohammed together, and officials of the State Emergency Management Authority (SEMA).
They were said to have embarked on a flood assessment of the Ganuwar Kuka area of the state before being attacked.
The attackers purportedly wielded sticks, matchets, and other dangerous weapons to register their displeasure against the state government over alleged lackluster attitude towards the flood, which to them, has affected eight local government areas under the Hadejia emirate.
