Angry youths set three suspected bandits, including a woman ablaze after a failed attack on a Fulani community in Goronyo local government area of Sokoto state.
The bandits met their deaths after they stormed Ruga, a Fulani community on the outskirts of Goronyo, around midnight on Wednesday, May 5.
The bandits who came to rustle cattle faced stiff resistance from the nomads who also arrested three of the attackers.
An eyewitness account reveal that the irate youths also torched the office of the vigilante group where the suspected bandits were temporarily kept.
The eyewitness said:
“The people there are well prepared. Bullets don’t penetrate them. They foiled the attack, arrested three of the bandits and handed them over to vigilantes in the morning.”
“When the news about the arrest reached our youths, they mobilized and stormed the vigilante office in Goronyo town where the bandits were temporarily kept. The youth were irked by the unremorseful utterances of the female bandit who was bragging that, she had been arrested and released and she knew she would be free again
“This was what triggered their action, they overpowered the vigilantes and set the office on fire. One of the suspects died inside the office while the female and the other suspect tried to escape through the window but were caught, killed and their corpses burnt to ashes,”
