Salame, who represents Gwadabawa/Illela federal constituency, disclosed that the gunmen attacked his home around 3am on Friday, and he killed one of the assailants.

Sharing photos of the foiled attack, the lawmaker said: “I was attacked in my house in Sokoto by armed robbers. But by Allah’s powers, I was able to shoot and kill one, and injured some.”

Bilal Goronyo, a supporter of the former Sokoto Assembly Speaker, who is now a 2023 governorship aspirant, also confirmed the incident on Facebook.

“They came to destroy him. Allah (SWT) did not give them the opportunity because Allah (SWT) promised to protect anyone who stands for truth and trust.

“This attack is not the first time. It has been done to the people who stand because the society is facing this kind of challenge,” Goronyo wrote.

The spokesman of Sokoto State Police Command, ASP Muhammad Sadiq, said the robbery attempt was thwarted by the swift response of the joint metropolitan Police Patrol.

Sadiq noted that an investigation had commenced and assured that operatives were on the trail of the gang.

“The command also calls for calm and enjoins residents of Sokoto to promptly tender any useful information that could speed up the arrest of the perpetrators or help the ongoing investigation”, he said.

KanyiDaily recalls that some unknown gunmen had recently killed a Bauchi Lawmaker in his house, abducted his two wives and one-year-old daughter.
