Vigilante Leader, 24 other persons killed by gunmen in multiple attacks
No fewer than 25 people were on Tuesday killed by bandits in three separate attacks in the Kanoma district of Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
Residents told Daily Trust that the armed men had earlier trapped a prominent vigilante leader in Kanoma identified as Dahiru Dangamji and three of his lieutenants in a forest 5km south of Kanoma town and shot them dead.
The news of the killing of the vigilante leader filtered into the community. Shortly afterwards, dozens of armed vigilantes mobilised and headed to the forest to confront the armed criminals and avenge the killing of their leader.
“But the gunmen who were informed that the vigilantes were coming into the forest laid an ambush and shot dead 16 of them. However, casualties were also recorded on the part of the armed men. Reports said more than ten of them were killed. But, this cannot be independently verified.
