Kogi State chairman of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Secondary School Science and Technology Education Board (STEB), Mr Abdulmumini Yakubu has been reported killed by gunmen.

The labour leader was allegedly murdered on Wednesday at Ozuwaya in Okene Local Government Area of the state.

He was reportedly assassinated alongside one Ibrahim Otaru who came to discuss some community issues with him while the deceased were performing ablution to observe prayers.

The incident was confirmed by the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Williams Ayah.

Mr Ayah said police are on the trail of the gunmen and promised that they would be apprehended and brought to justice soon.

Consequently, the organised labour in the state suspended discussion with the government on the ongoing strike, following the gruesome murder of the labour leader last night.
