Bandits have killed Alhaji Mohammadu Kudu Lawal, a Director with the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS.

He was killed in Saminaka village of Lapai Local Government Area (LGA) in Niger State while he was travelling to Abuja on Sunday. Another staff of the FIRS was injured in the attack.

Lawal, an indigene of Lafiagi in Kwara State, ran into the bandits who rained bullets on the Hilux vehicle he was travelling in.
