Unidentified gunmen have attacked the convoy of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero in Kano.
The Emir’s convoy was attacked Saturday as he returned from a religious function. The attackers opened fire when the guards were firing the traditional guns to signal Bayero’s exit.
The attackers opened fire from a motorcycle. While the Emir escaped unhurt, his driver was killed by gunfire.
So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the attack.
