A wanted notorious bandit in Kaduna State, Nasiru Kachalla has been shot dead in a battle of supremacy with rival bandit group.
Security agencies confirmed the death of Kachalla to the Kaduna State Government on Monday.
Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, said Kachalla, who has been on the run for masterminding several criminal acts, including kidnappings, killings, cattle rustling and banditry, was killed in a clash between his gang and a rival group of bandits.
He said human intelligence networks confirmed that criminals from the rival sides were also killed, including some of Kachalla’s lieutenants.
The commissioner stated that the clash occurred in a forest around the boundaries of Kajuru-Chikun local government areas of Kaduna Central Senatorial District, after a dispute over a large herd of rustled cattle.
