Vigilantes kill bandit leader in Sokoto,
identify him as a former resident.

A suspected bandit leader, who led his gang to attack Takakume community on Sunday morning in the Goronyo Local Government Area of Sokoto State has been killed.

He was also identified as a former resident of the community.

The armed gang attacked the community in the early hours of Sunday but were engaged by the vigilante in a fierce battle resulting in the death of the gang leader.

A source from the community confirmed to DAILY POST, “He was the one leading the attack on the community.”

Abdulwahab Goronyo, the council chairman, while speaking to newsmen, explained that the bandits attacked the community around midnight, killed one person and abducted six.

According to the chairman, “Vigilantes in the area pursued the bandits and in the process killed one of them who was later identified as one of the persons that once resided in the
area. He lived with his parents.”

He explained that some days ago, the same village was attacked by bandits while those abducted were still in captivity.

However, a source claimed that the bandits had killed the captives out of annoyance that their leader was killed.

He said that the bandits shot the abductees to death and their bodies were recovered this morning and buried.




Bandits kill three, wound three in fresh
Katsina attack.

Gunmen, locally referred to as bandits, on Saturday attacked Gurbin Magarya community of Jibia Local Government Area of Katsina State, killing three people and wounding three others.

The bandits were reported to have also killed the livestock of residents of the community.

Local sources told PREMIUM TIMES that the bandits attacked the community around 10 pm and blocked all entries into the community.

Halliru Haladu, a resident of Jibia, said the attackers arrived on motorcycles.“If not because of the soldiers and vigilante members stationed on the road leading to the communities
from Jibia, the bandits would have succeeded in wiping the whole community,” Mr Haladu said. “They (vigilante members and soldiers) were very brave. They succeeded in repelling the attackers but, by the time they came, three people had been killed.”

Mr Haladu identified those who were killed as Muntari Naqawuri, Surajo Salisu and Musa Hassan. He said Mustapha Salisu, Basiru Abubakar and Muhammad Rabiu were wounded during the

The wounded are receiving treatment at a public health facility in Jibia.

A youth leader in the area, Mustapha Kabir, said he could hear gunshots from Jibia during the attack.

“Some people who were late outside said they saw the bandits moving towards Gurbin Magarya direction before the attack,” he said.

The police command spokesperson, Gambo Isa, didn’t respond to calls and SMS sent to him during the attack.

What started as farmers-herders clashes snowballed into cattle rustling before access to small arms emboldened the criminals to raid villages. Widespread endemic poverty, illiteracy
and porous borders with the Niger Republic have combined to complicate the insecurity in the region.

The attacks have now become routine in the northwest. In Zamfara, Katsina, Sokoto, Kaduna, and Kebbi, as well as in Niger State in the north-central, attacks on rural communities,
travellers and farmers occur daily.

The activities of these bandits have disrupted farming, the principal occupation of the area. These assailants burn farmlands, and they regularly sack farming communities. The bandits
ask those who are lucky to pay levies before they can farm. Those who have resisted or could not raise the levies on time have either been killed or prevented from harvesting their crop.




Unknown gunmen set ablaze truck conveying
cows in Anambra.

However, no casualty was recorded in the incident, the man who made the video noted.

He said, “Good morning everybody, unknown gunmen just attacked Hausa men carrying cows this early morning Sunday. The gunmen did not kill anyone but they injured the driver. As you
can see, they have set this vehicle on fire. This is a full trailer carrying cows.

“Unknown gunmen attacked Ezinifite road between Ezinifite and Uga. This is live, it just happened now.”

This comes exactly a month after unknown gunmen shot dead over 20 cows and several goats at the Nkwo Igboukwu market in the Aguata local government area of Anambra.

SaharaReporters had reported at the time that some residents who were thrown into a state of confusion following the incident, gathered around the dead livestock, deliberating what
could have happened.

From videos shared, some of the traders were seen running, as they assumed the gunmen came back to attack them. However, they returned when they observed their assumption was baseless.

A man said, “People can just start running at any time. We are just being vigilant. This is happening live at Igboukwu.”
