BREAKING: Notorious bandit Ummaru Nagona reportedly shot dead

The Nigerian Military has gunned down Ummaru Nagona, one of the notorious bandits terrorising residents of North-Western part of the country.

As reported by Daily Trust, Nagona, until his death, consistently posed huge threats to people living on the eastern areas of Sokoto, especially the villages in Isa and Sabon City.

Speaking on the killing of the bandit, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, a former Daily Trust Editor, who covered insecurity extensively, wrote, “I just received confirmation of the killing of the big gunman, Ummaru Nagona in arangama with Nigerian Army Atilare’s military car was carried on a motorbike along with the boy who supported him on their way to the rescue as a result of attacks on the gunmen camp in Kagara area east of Shinkafi (in Zamfara State).

“I met Ummaru Nagona on a visit to Bello Turji in December 2021. If you see him you don’t say he’s a gunman. Evil has no resemblance!”

Abdulaziz’s award-winning documentary captured his encounter with the militant warlords, including Bello Turji.

As of press time, the Military was yet to comment on the killing of Nagona.
