Gunmen have shot dead the General Manager of Kogi State Investment and Properties Limited, Mrs. Joe Alhassan and an unidentified woman.

Our correspondent gathered on Wednesday that the gunmen attacked the victims  on their way from a missionary work in Bassa Local Government Area of Kogi State.

It was further learnt that the attackers opened fire on the vehicle of the missionaries, which left two occupants of the vehicle, including Alhassan, dead and many others injured.

The Kogi State Government described the attack as tragic and senseless, saying it was very said that the two died at a time when their services to the state and their communities were most needed.

The Kogi State Deputy Governor, Mr. Yomi Awoniyi, spoke during a condolence visit to Bishop Emmanuel Egbunu of the Anglican Communion to condole with the church over the death of the two parishioners.

Awoniyi described the circumstances of Alhassan’s death as painful, adding that the state had lost one of its finest, and best materials.

He described Alhassan as a wonderful personality, a complete woman and a good mother, praying God to grant her husband, children and her  immediate family the fortitude to bear the loss.

    Distinguish Hon. Egwu has a point, the Steal Company ran into this mess during Buhari`s military regime, and if he has no sentiment about the location of the company he should challenge us by reviving the Steal Company especially now that Nigeria need diversify her economy.

    Your comment…l am hearing Hon Egwu speaking. The problem we have is the issue of Margeligation. lf the Ajastel is functioning,not only the people from north central will work there, the managing Director will posted from far north.

    Egwu,,,,u try but we need seriously prayer in kogi state especially IDAH AGIS, may God help us tru.

    Some people talk as if they are not educated @Hussain. The job of the house of rep member is to speak unbehalf of his constituency a rule Hon. Egwu just displayed and instead of commending him u are blaming him asking him to carryout the function of the executive. There is a minister from the same constituency I think in the person of Audi Ogbe what did u tell him. Was he not there when tomato pests ravage our tomato for over three months. As minister for agriculture we aspect more from him. Let’s stop playing politics at this crucial time. We need to be unified against marginalization.
