Security agencies are investigating alleged collaboration with bandits by some locals, during recent disturbing attacks in Kajuru local government area.
This followed the killing of a suspected bandits’ collaborator by youths of Maro village.
Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said in a statement on Saturday that a sequence of reported attacks began in Ungwan Sha’awa in Kajuru local government area, where armed bandits killed one Ubangida Dogo in his home.
He said the report revealed that 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,” Aruwan said.
“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.”
