Bandits Turn Guns Against Each Other, Kill 9 Members In Kaduna Over Ransom




In a twist of fate, a band of bandits have turned their guns against each other, Killing nine members and wounding others during a duel.

They met their self - inflicted nemesis in Giwa local government area of Kaduna State in a fratricidal gun battle.

Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed  this  in a statement on Friday 

Samuel said it was  not yet clear what caused the fratricidal battle among them  but added that it revolved around disagreement over sharing of accumulated ransoms during which some of them felt shortchanged.

He noted that intelligence network   informed the Kaduna State Government of the development, which was further corroborated by security agencies.

“Intelligence sources had reported that a notorious bandit known as ‘Godon Mota’ stormed Garke village last Wednesday with his gang and clashed with a rival bandit group, leading to the killing of nine members.

“Acting Governor Dr Hadiza Balarabe noted the report with thanks and urged security agencies to sustain pressure towards the apprehending of criminal elements in the general area.
