Two notorious bandits in Shinkafi Local Government Area of Zamfara State, Dullu and Dan Maigari, have been killed alongside at least 15 others during an attack on their base by another notorious bandit, Bello Turji.

The Tuesday morning clash was the bloodiest encounter between the two sides who have been locked in a long rivalry.

The recent clash followed the killing of a member of the gang of a bandit kingpin on Turji’s side, Na-Sanda.

Daily Trust gathered that Turji mobilised fighters loyal to him who launched an unexpected attack at the Maniya hideouts of the rival gang where they killed some of the gang’s members including Dullu himself and Dan Maigari, who is a younger brother of Bashari Maniya – a noted bandit turned intermediary.

A source from a nearby Dangondi village said many gunmen from Maniya were seen crossing the Moriki-Shinkafi Road into Sububu Forest, escaping from the onslaught.

“Turji also abducted some men from the area but we heard he later killed. Dullu’s corpse and some others have been abandoned at his own base.

“Turji himself is believed to have lost some men but we are not sure how many. But I have seen some of them returning with bullet wounds,” he said.

The spokesman of the Zamfara Police Command, SP Shehu Mohammed, did not answer phone calls and a text message seeking his comment on the story.
