Nasiru Kachalla, a suspected bandit leader, has reportedly been killed in a clash between his group and a rival gang in Kaduna state.
In a statement on Monday, Samuel Aruwan, commissioner for internal security and home affairs, said security agencies confirmed the killing of Kachalla.
Kachalla, who was said to be on the run for masterminding several criminal acts, including the kidnapping and killing of a Catholic seminarian, was killed during the clash at a forest around the boundaries of Kajuru-Chikun local government areas of the state.
The clash, which claimed the lives of several members of the rival bandit groups, was said to have happened as a result of a dispute over a large herd of rustled cattle.Get Everything You Need For Church! Supplies Available Now!
