The Deputy Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Ibrahim Wakkala has confirmed the death of the state’s most wanted bandit, Buharin Daji.
Displaying Daji’s lifeless body, Wakkala on Friday said the notorious bandit was killed by his colleagues.
Daji was said to have been behind the killing of hundreds of people in the state.
The body was brought to Government House, Gasau, under tight security from the bushes of Dansadau, about 200 kilometers from the state capital where he was reported to have been killed.
“I am here to confirm to you that this notorious bandit, Buharin Daji, has finally met his waterloo.
“He was killed by some of the repentant bandits who have since renounced their criminal ways and are helping security agents in dislodging those that have refused to surrender.”
Wakkala said the governor had directed that the remains should be deposited at the mortuary until he returned from his trip to give further details on what happened.
He, however, commended the people of the state for their prayers which culminated into what happened and urged them to continue with the prayers for the attainment of lasting peace in the state and the country.
Wakkala also ommended the Federal Government for deploying more security agents to the state and all those who contributed to the successes recorded.
