TheTalk.NG journalist Ridwan Adeola Yusuf has over 9 years of experience covering security matters in Nigeria.

Dunmurun, Zamfara state – A notorious bandit, simply identified as Dangote, has been reportedly killed by a rival gang.

As reported by Daily Trust on Tuesday morning, April 9, the incident happened in the early hours of Sunday, April 7, in Dunmurun in Zurmi local government area (LGA) of Zamfara state.

The slain bandit terrorised sections of Zamfara and Katsina states. He was reportedly killed alongside his two brothers in a gun battle with a bandit gang led by Kachalla Dankarami, aka Goska.

A source said:

“What happened was that one of the boys of Dankarami carted away a flock of sheep belonging to one of Dangote’s siblings, Sale Lamo, and he was trailed by the Dangote gang who retrieved the sheep and killed the boy.

“By then Dankarami was at Rukudawa, he was told about the incident and thus he came after them. By the time he reached Dumburum area, he heard that they had mobilised to fight him, so he waylaid them and pounced on them, killing Dangote, Lamo na Balewa and Usman Yellow.

“The theft of the ewe could just be a trigger but the clash was already planned because on Saturday, April 6, Dankarami’s boys were seen telling the residents of communities around Dumburum that there would be a clash, that they should vacate the area.”

TheTalk.NG reports that Katsina and Zamfara states are among the several Nigerian states where banditry activities refuse to subside. Hundreds of people have been killed in recent years.

Conflict has continued to roil the country’s northern and central regions, where armed groups are active and government forces have been accused of committing abuses.
