Bandits Kingpin, Others Killed During Clash With Rival Group Over Rustled Cattles

LAGOS DECEMBER 29TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Disagreement amongst bandits over large herds of rustled cows has led the killing of a notorious terrorist, Nasiru Kachalla and his colleagues.

Security agencies have confirmed to the Kaduna State Government the killing of Nasiru Kachalla.

Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner, Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State, said on Monday that Kachalla, who has been on the run for masterminding several criminal acts, including kidnappings, killings, cattle rustling and banditry, was killed in a clash between his gang and a rival group of bandits.

According to Aruwan,” human intelligence networks confirmed that criminals from the rival sides were also killed, including some of Kachalla’s lieutenants.

“The clash occurred in a forest around the boundaries of Kajuru-Chikun local government areas of Kaduna Central Senatorial District. A dispute over a large herd of rustled cattle is said to have triggered the fatal confrontation.

“Kachalla and his gang were involved in several crimes, including kidnappings, killings and banditry on the Kaduna-Abuja road and also in the Chikun/Kajuru general areas. He was the mastermind of the 9th January 2020 kidnapping of seminarians of Good Shepherd Major Seminary, Kaduna, and the 24th January 2020 kidnapping of Mrs Bola Ataga and her two children.

“The criminals later killed one of the seminarians, Michael Nnadi and Mrs Ataga before releasing her children.

“Kachalla’s criminal gang was also responsible for the kidnap of six students and two teachers of Engravers College, in Kakau village of Chikun local government on 3rd October 2019.

“While Kachalla was being pursued, security agents arrested three members of his gang, Tukur Usman, Shehu Bello and Mustapha Mohammed in April 2020.”
