I Don’t Kidnap, I Only Kill People – Aleru, Zamfara Terrorist ‘Chief’

 

Notorious banditry kingpin, Ada Aleru in a recent interview revealed that he does not kidnap people but kills them.

Recall that Aleru was recently named the Sarkin Fulani Yandoton Daji Emirate (the head of the Fulani in Yandoton Daji).

The coronation of Aleru in Zamfara State generated controversy across the country.

Aleru leads terrorists that rade in Tsafe and Faskari axis of Zamfara and Katsina states.

Naija News had earlier reported that the Zamfara State government suspended the Emir of the town, Aliyu Marafa for conferring the title on Mr Aleru, who is wanted in neighbouring Katsina State for mass killings.

The Katsina government had placed a bounty of N5 million on information leading to the arrest of Aleru, who is accused of killing 52 people in Kadisau, a community in Faskari Local Government in 2019.

Aleru in an interview with BBC revealed that he is not pleased with Hausas and the Nigerian government.

In a documentary titled “The Bandit Warlords of Zamfara” billed to be aired on 25 July 2022, Aleru said while his men kidnap people, he is only interested in killing people.

Aleru said, “My men do that; I just go and kill them (people).

An unnamed associate of Mr Aleru told the BBC Africa Eye team that “the Fulani are systematically excluded from government jobs and other economic opportunities, and that the Nigerian air force attacks innocent Fulani herders and kills their cattle. “How have the Fulani become so worthless in Nigeria?” he asks.
