Bandits kill 3 as youths lynch alleged collaborator in Kaduna

Published by The Nation on Sun, 21 Feb 2021


By AbdulGafar Alabelewe, KadunaFollowing a sequence of attacks by bandits who killed three persons, youths of Maro in Kajuru Council of Kaduna State, have lynched to death a man, nicknamed Doctor, suspected to be an accomplice of bandits. The States Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, made this known in a statement, adding that, security operatives have been directed to identify the perpetrators of the lynching for prosecution. He also maintained that security agencies are investigating alleged collaboration with bandits by some locals, during recent disturbing attacks in Kajuru local government area.The commissioner explained that a sequence of reported attacks began in Ungwan Shaawa in Kajuru local government area, where armed bandits killed one Ubangida Dogo in his home. He continued: According to the report, his son, Jude Ubangida was injured by the bandits and is receiving treatment in hospital. As the bandits withdrew from the village, they also attacked Ungwan Galadima in the same locality and killed one Bulus Gwamna. In Ungwan Gamu along the same trail, one Daniel Danlami was similarly killed by the marauding bandits. Preliminary investigations thereafter suggested that the bandits conducted these attacks with the aid of some local youths. As security agencies probed this further, one such suspect known simply as Doctor, from Kujeni village, was swiftly attacked and killed by youths of Maro in revenge.Just before his death, he confessed his involvement in the attack, and named a certain Fidelis Ali, also from Maro, as another accomplice of the bandits. Ali has since been arrested and taken into custody by the Police. Governor Nasir El-Rufai expressed sadness at the reports of the killings, and sent his sincere condolences the families of the slain, while praying for the repose of their souls. Going further, the Governor expressed deep concerns over the alleged involvement of locals, and more so the lynching of one of the suspects. The Governor appealed to citizens to allow investigations proceed and not usurp the process, reminding them that jungle justice is a grievous form of self-help and remains a crime. Security agencies have thus been directed to identify the perpetrators of the lynching for prosecution. Investigations into the incidents are in progress, Aruwan said.
