Six bandits at different times and at different places were lynched and burnt by angry locals in this festive period when they came to attack some communities in Southern Kaduna Senatorial district.

In a reaction, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has cautioned the citizens to have recourse to law rather than resorted to jungle justice.

The six bandits were killed by mobs in Sanga and Lere local government areas in Kaduna South Senatorial district.

The development was disclosed by the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan in a statement he made available to journalists in Kaduna.

He explained: On 24th December 2020 at Fadan Karshi in Sanga local government area, two bandits attacked a businessman and dispossessed him of money and other valuables.

“On receiving the distress call, the military and police set out to the location. However, on getting to the scene, some angry locals had already mobbed the bandits and burnt them to ashes.

“In the same local government, on Thursday night armed bandits opened fire on motorists plying the Aboro-Kafanchan Road.

“The bullets hit one Richard Sabo who in the course of driving knocked down one of the bandits to death. Sadly, Mr. Sabo who suffered bullet wounds was confirmed dead at Gwantu General Hospital.

“In Lere local government, security agencies reported that some bandits from a neighboring state who specialized in stealing livestock were also killed through mob action.

In Domawa village, the bandits were chased by the locals and were overpowered and three of them were set on fire.

“On a sad note, the government is in receipt of a report of the killing of a commercial motorcyclist, one Hudu Yahaya of Ungwan Nungu village of Sanga local government. He was beheaded by bandits who escaped with his motorcycle.

According to him, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has sent his condolences to the families of Richard Sabo and Hudu Yahaya and prayed for the repose of their souls.
