Notorious bandit, Ummaru Nagona killed by troops
The Nigerian army has killed Ummaru Nagona, one of the notorious bandits terrorizing the people of the North West.
Before being killed, Nagona operated in the eastern part of Sokoto, particularly in the local government villages of Isa and Sabon Birni.
Daily Trust reported that earlier reports suggested it was another terrorist leader, Bello Turji, who was killed, but credible sources said it was Nagona and another conspirator who were killed by the troops.
A source told the publication;
“Nagona and his aide were speeding on a motorbike towards somewhere when they were ambushed and run over by Nigerian troops.”
Elsewhere, four other people were killed and a herd of cattle belonging to the terrorists was killed during the clearance operation.
The source added;
“Some people in nearby villages had met Turji following Nagona’s murder and told him to call his men to order regarding recent events.”
