A District Head of Dala Alamderi who is also a protocol officer of the Borno State Government in charge of Maiduguri International Airport, Alhaji Liberty Dala has been killed by gunmen suspected to be members of Boko Haram sect.
Liberty, as he is fondly called was a hardworking protocol man whose responsibility before his untimely death, was to arrange/book flying tickets to Borno state Government, its officials and politicians at the Maiduguri international airport.
He was also the District Head of Dala Alamderi, a position he inherited after the demise of his father some years ago.
Our Correspondent gathered that the gunmen on Thursday evening ambushed the residence of the District head in Dala Alamderi ward of Maiduguri metropolis and shot him dead before slicing his body with cutlass and fled without being arrested in the presence of his wife and children.
A resident who did not want his name mentioned in print for security reason told our Correspondent that the gunmen ambushed the protocol officer around 9 pm on Thursday, but due to the 6am to 9pm curfew imposed in Maiduguri and its environs, all residents and neighbours upon hearing the sound of gunshots could not come out to find out what was happening in the deceased house.
