Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

Troops of the Nigerian Army have eliminated a notorious bandits’ commander, popularly known as ‘Dogo Maikasuwa,’ during an ambush.

Dogo was the lord of the forest at Gengere-Kaso general area, around the Chikun and Kajuru boundaries of Kaduna State before he met his Waterloo.

The state government, in a statement signed by the Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the development was disclosed in operational feedback from security agencies.

The statement explained that Dogo Maikasuwa, also known as ‘Dogo Maimillion’, led a series of attacks and abductions of citizens plying the Kaduna-Kachia Road, and in communities within Chikun and Kajuru LGAs.

It pointed out that the notorious bandit was one of the deadliest bandits leading other elements in terrorizing citizens of these general areas.

“He was always dressed in green camouflage military fatigues and wielding an AK47 rifle.

“Such was his appearance during the duel with security forces which ultimately consumed him,” the statement read.

He reportedly led his bandits to engage in operations with cruelty, often killing kidnapped victims when ransoms were delayed or considered meagre.

“In his final stand, the notorious bandit in the company of his foot soldiers, ran into an ambush laid by operatives in a forest in the Gengere-Kaso general area, around the Chikun and Kajuru boundaries.

“The security forces after the fierce battle successfully neutralized the bandit leader and recovered one AK-47 rifle, one magazine, five rounds of ammunition, two motorcycles and one set of camouflage military fatigues.

“The other bandits escaped with gun wounds. It was further gathered that one of them died from injuries sustained in the fierce battle, with his remains carried away by other fleeing elements.”

Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, received the feedback with gratitude and commended the personnel for their bravery in the fierce battle against the bandits.
