Nemesis has caught up with two groups of armed bandits in Giwa local council of Kaduna State, who killed nine of their members during a gun duel.

The state’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, disclosed the development in a statement, yesterday.

The commissioner said the cause of the face-off between the bandits was yet unclear, adding, however, that sources said it revolves around a disagreement over sharing of accumulated ransoms, during which one of the groups felt cheated. 

According to the commissioner, a credible intelligence network informed the 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. Investigations and security patrols are ongoing,” Aruwan said.
