Notorious bandit leader who masterminded Kankara boys abduction killed in Zamfara
Notorious bandit leader, Auwalun Daudawa who masterminded the kidnapping of over 300 students of Government Science Secondary School Kankara, Katsina State last December has been killed by rival gang.
The Zamfara State Commissioner for Security and Home Affairs, Abubakar Dauran, confirmed his death.
According to Channels Television, Daudawa was reportedly shot dead by a rival gang while on a revenge mission.
The notorious bandit leader had laid down his arms and accepted Governor Bello Matawalle’s peace initiative in February 2021 but a few days ago, he went back into the trenches to continue his banditry.
Daudawa had surrendered 20 AK-47 rifles, 20 Magazines, one General Purpose Machine Gun, one Rocket-Propelled Grenade and several ammunitions to the Zamfara State government on the day he repented with five of his comrades.
He had reportedly sworn never to go back to his old ways but he resumed his illegal activities recently.
WITHIN NIGERIA recall that last December, bandits kidnapped over 300 pupils from a boys secondary boarding school in Kankara, Katsina state. The boys were later released within a week after successful negotiations with the kidnappers.
