When the gunshots stopped, the district head was found shot in the forehead and was immediately rushed to the Biu General Hospital where he died.
He was buried in Biu Thursday morning.
Residents of the village have called on the federal government to intensify efforts in protecting the lives of its citizens before other communities are sacked.
