The All Progressives Congress (APC) chairmanship candidate for Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Cashman Alamkah Dominic Usman, has been killed by unknown gunmen.
It was gathered that Usman was shot dead by the assailants along Keffi-Akwanga road in Nassarawa state on his way to Benue state on Monday, July 26.
Until his death, he was the APC flag-bearer in Kachia for the local government council elections set to hold on Saturday, August 14, 2021.
The politician will be laid to rest on Thursday, July 29.
Recall that the election of chairmen/councillors in all the 23 local government areas of Kaduna state was earlier billed for Saturday, June 5, 2021, but was postponed due to the non-arrival of imported items meant for the conduct of the polls.
