Media reports coming from Niger State in the north-central part of Nigeria have it that about 47 terrorists, also known as bandits, have on Wednesday been eliminated by “local hunters.”
The terrorists are notorious for unleashing terror on the communities in the Shiroro axis in Niger State.
The local hunters were said to have raided the hideous of the bandits in their large number in a riverside community that is located between Shiroro and Rafi Local Governments.
A police officer, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the raid on the terrorists.
He was quoted by PRNigeria as saying, “I can tell you for a fact that the bandits met their waterloo. At least 47 of them were eliminated by the hunters who participated in the operation.”
Niger State suffers incessant attacks by bandits who kill innocent people and kidnap students in large numbers.
A recent incident of abduction in the state was the kidnap of over 80 Islamiyya students in a community called Tegina.
Many of them, however, recently regained freedom after spending many days in captivity.
