andits in Niger flee as ‘dreaded 70 year old’ priestess arrives to engage them
Hundreds of bandits terrorizing communities in Rafi local government area of the state on Sunday, fled the communities after they were informed by their informants that the “dread” woman spiritualist had arrived the town with local hunters to launch onslaught against them.
It was gathered that after the successful attacks on the bandits last week leading to the killing of about 40 of them in a sting operation that was led by the priestess, the state approach her for help against those bandits in Rafi, Shiroro and Paikoro local government areas of the state.
The priestess with the hunters had arrived Kagara on Sunday afternoon only to discovered that the bandits had got information about her presence in the town and fled their hideouts.
The woman was said to have immediately told the people that some informants had told the bandits of her arrival in town.
“The woman told us that the bandits are already aware of her arrival and had taken to their heels with their motorcycles. She even showed us in a calabash how they were escaping”, a source close to the communities said.
This development, our source said, infuriated the woman’s spiritualist and she left the town with anger, but assured the people that the bandits would be tracked down if they (bandits) ventured to returned to the communities.
“She said now that she had known the communities, she would not announce her next visit”, our source disclosed.
It could be recalled that the state governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello had raised the alarm that informants had continued to frustrate the effort of the government in the fight against the bandits in the state.
The governor stated this in Minna recently while giving an update on the security situation in parts of the state that the informants were everywhere “including here in Government House” but vowed that the war against all forms of banditry and criminality would be won in the end.
