Troops Kill Notorious Bandit In Sokoto

The Nigerian military has killed Ummaru Nagona, one of the notorious bandits terrorising residents of North West.

 

Before being killed, Nagona operated on the eastern part of Sokoto, especially in villages of Isa and Sabon Birni local governments.

 

Daily Trust reported that earlier reports suggested that it was another terrorists kingpin, Bello Turji that was killed but credible sources said it was Nagona and another conspirator that were killed by troops.

 

A source told the publication;

 

“Nagona and his collaborator were speeding on a motorcycle heading to somewhere when they were ambushed and crashed by Nigerian troops.”

 

Elsewhere, four other people were killed and a herd of cattle belonging to the terrorists were killed during the clearing operation.

 

The source added;

 

“Some people in the neighbouring villages had met with Turji in the aftermath of the killing of Nagona and told him to call his men to order in respect to recent happenings.”
