Six bandits have been killed in Sanga and Lere Local Government Areas of Kaduna State by mobs who allegedly acted in self-defense.
This development was contained in a report by security agencies to the Kaduna State Government.
According to the operational feedback, on 24th December 2020 at Fadan Karshi in Sanga Local Government Area, two bandits attacked a businessman and dispossessed him of money and other valuables.
Before the Military and Police arrived at the crime scene, some angry locals had already killed and burnt the bandits to ashes.
In the same LGA on Thursday night, armed bandits opened fire on motorists plying the Aboro-Kafanchan Road. The bullets hit one Richard Sabo, who knocked one of the bandits to death. Sadly, Mr. Sabo was confirmed dead at Gwantu General Hospital, the State Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, noted.
The report also claimed that some bandits from a neighboring State who specialized in stealing livestock were killed by a mob in Lere Local Government Area. The bandits were chased and overpowered at Domawa village, where three of them met their waterloo.
On a sad note, the Government is in receipt of a report of the killing of a commercial motorcyclist, one Hudu Yahaya of Ungwan Nungu village of Sanga local government.
He was beheaded by bandits who escaped with his motorcycle, Mr. Samuel Aruwan added.
Meanwhile, the Governor of the State, Nasir El-Rufai, admonishes citizens not to resort to jungle justice and allow the law to take its course.
