Oyogist has learned that Gunmen have attacked a mosque in the Maisamari community in the Sardauna Local Government Area of the Taraba State, killing the district head.

The district head, identified as Abdulkadir Safiyanu, was said to be observing an Islamic night prayer at the mosque when they attacked Monday night.
