The LCCN Pastor was killed by gunmen at his residence in Nasarawo Gereng Area of Mayo Belwa, headquarters of the Mayo Belwa local government Area.

Bagauri became popular in the state after he became a voice for Christians in government when Murtala Nyako and Mohammed Jibrila Bindow were Governors. The deceased served under Bindow as Senior Special Assistant on Religion Matters and was also the liaison officer for Christians under Murtala Nyako.

A friend of late Bagauri, Alhaji Muhammad Buba who confirmed the murder incident told The Nation;

“They killed him last night. A member of the family told me they have taken his corpse to the mortuary.”
