The Head of operations Adamawa State Hunters’ Association, Mr Young Mori, was killed in a gun battle with gunmen in Kaduna State, Northwest Nigeria, the association said on Tuesday.
Salihu Buba Webkenso, the Head of Administration, Adamawa Hunters Association, said “it is indeed a great loss to the entire association of hunters in Adamawa State and Guyuk Local Government Area.”
He explained that Mori was killed in Kaduna by terrorists in the early hours of Tuesday.
He described Mori as a great hunter who aided security agencies in Adamawa State and other northern states on operation towards fighting insurgency.
“Mori sacrificed his life to restore peace in Northern Nigerian, but gunmen overpowered him and shot him to death,” Johnson Gwadami, a spokesperson for Lugunda speaking communities in Adsmaws State, said.
“We have lost a hero, rest on and your spirit is with us.
“We have lost a blood brother, nothing we can do rather than to pray for him.
“Your memories are indelible to the entire world and God will protect the refuge of Lunguda and its people,” Gwadami said.
