Six persons have been confirmed dead after some unknown gunmen attacked the Emir of Potiskum, Alhaji , on the Kaduna-Zaria Highway on Tuesday night.

The Kaduna Police Command spokesman, Yakubu Sabo, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the incident occurred about 11 pm.

NAN gathered that several people might have been abducted by the attackers as empty vehicles were left at the scene when government officials visited on Wednesday.

It is not clear as to the degree of injury sustained by the Emir, but Sabo said the monarch was at the Barau Dikko Hospital in Kaduna and was “doing very well. “
