Recently, scores of bandits were also reportedly killed as a result of a heavy fight between two bandit groups in Dajin Haja, a forest between Hayin Alhaji and Munhaye forest of the Tsafe Local Government Area in Zamfara State.

The clash occurred when a group of bandits from neighbouring Katsina State invaded some communities in Zamfara State with about 41 motorcycles to kidnap the residents

But a notorious bandits’ kingpin Ado Alero who is an indigene of the area and operates from Munhaye forest, intervened and refused to allow the rival bandits group to kidnap the villagers.

Residents of Zamfara State are hoping that the rival clash will continue, urging the security agencies to finish off the recalcitrant bandits elements in the state.
