Notorious bandit leader Auwalun Daudawa who led his gang to abduct over 300 students of Government Science Secondary School Kankara, Katsina State last December has been killed.
The Commissioner for Security and Home Affairs in Zamfara State, Abubakar Dauran, confirmed his death, according to Channels Television.
Daudawa had laid down his arms and accepted Governor Bello Matawalle’s peace initiative in February 2021 but a few days ago, he went back into the trenches to continue his banditry.
Daudawa had surrendered 20 AK-47 rifles, 20 Magazines, one General Purpose Machine Gun, one Rocket-Propelled Grenade and several ammunitions to the Zamfara State government on the day he repented with five of his comrades.
He had reportedly sworn never to go back to his old ways but he resumed his illegal activities recently.
The notorious bandit leaders was reportedly shot dead by a rival gang while on a revenge mission.
Daudawa and his gang threw the whole nation into excruciating pains last December when they abducted young boys of Kankara numbering over 300. The boys were kidnapped on the same day the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), visited the state. The lads, were, however, freed after about six days of grueling search.
