Nigerian Troops Kill Notorious Bandit Leader Dogo Gide

A notorious bandits’ leader in the North West region of Nigeria, Dogo Gide, has been killed.

Former presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, revealed this in a post via his official X handle on Wednesday morning.

Ahmad said the bandits’ leader died from gunshot wounds sustained during a confrontation with Operation Hadarin Daji, OPHD, troops of the Nigerian Army.

“Woke up to the good news that Dogo Gide, has finally kicked the bucket. The notorious bandits leader died from gunshot wounds sustained during a confrontation with Operation Hadarin Daji (OPHD) forces,” Ahmad wrote.

Gide, one of Nigeria’s most wanted bandits, is responsible for the kidnapping and deaths of thousands of innocent villagers and the displacement of even more in the North.

DAILY POST gathered that his operational headquarters rotate among states in the North West, especially Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, and Katsina.

On October 30, 2023, Gide escaped death and capture following a fierce battle with Nigerian troops when they stormed his strongholds in Zamfara State in a surprise operation.

It was gathered that the troops breached Gide’s Yau Sarkin Pawa residence, searched the house, and destroyed it.

Items recovered included a tailoring factory for sewing various military and other security agencies’ uniforms, Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), a mini pharmacy suspected to be used for the treatment of wounded terrorists, and five operational motorcycles and sewing machines, among others.
