Five vigilantes have been gunned down by bandit terrorists along Kaduna-Birnin Gwari highway in Kaduna State, North-West Nigeria.
Naija News gathered that the local security members were attacked and killed near Unguwar Yako town on Tuesday evening.
According to a community leader, Liman Husaini Udawa, three of the vigilantes escaped during the attack, while their vehicle was set ablaze.
He told Daily Trust that the victims will be buried at Udawa town in Chikun Local Government Area of the state.
“They were ambushed and their vehicle was set ablaze near Unguwar Yako along the highway by the bandits. As we speak we recovered five bodies of our vigilantes three escaped,” he said.
He said this has emboldened the group to go against directives issued by the state governments and continue to kill innocent farmers across the nation.
Ortom alleged further that over 1.5 milion people have been displaced from their ancestral lands by the Miyeti Allah group in Benue State alone.
The Governor vowed to continue defending the rights of the people and insisted he won’t keep quiet until what is right is done and justice is served.
He made the submissions during a press briefing on Wednesday in Makurdi, the state capital.
Ortom observed that the Miyetti Allah group is executing violence in the state because it wants his administration to repeals its anti-open grazing law.
He called on the federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari and the security agencies to arrest the members of the group and stop indulging them.
