A former governorship aspirant in Zamfara state under the banner of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Sagir Hamidu, has been shot dead by bandits.

He was killed on Sunday when bandits blocked the Kaduna-Abuja Highway and opened fire on travellers.

It was gathered that the incident occurred around 3:30pm close to Rijana along the busy highway.

The late Hamidu was at one time a Director of protocol in the FCT.

Those who watched the incident from a distance said the bandits had operated unchallenged for over an hour.
