Notorious bandits’ leader, Dogo Gide, shot dead by own fighters in Zamfara State, Northwest Nigeria

Notorious bandits’ leader in Northwest Nigeria, Dogo Gide, has been reportedly killed by some of his own terrorists’ fighters.

The late Dogo allegedly killed another notorious bandits’ leader, Buharin Daji, some years ago.

Eons Intelligence said Gide was reportedly killed at a hide out where he was receiving treatment for gun shot injuries sustained at an earlier battle at Kuya Bana forest in Zamfara State. 

His men are said to have collaborated with another notorious bandit group, led by late Damina, in the attack that led to his demise.

According to a trusted source, Dogo Gide’s death was received with great relief, especially in the Security circles.

His death has been described as a great advantage in the fight against armed banditry, kidnapping and cattle rustling in Nigeria.

Dogo Gide and his goons had been terrorising many communities in Zamfara, Niger, Kaduna, katsina and Kebbi States for many years.

“At the height of his notoriety he controlled several hundred of heavily armed men and has camps in Kuya Bana forest, Zamfara State, Goron Dutse forest, Dogon Gona forest in Birnin Gwari and Shiroro LGAs, respectively in Kaduna/Niger States and Kafarma forest.

“Dogo Gide was the brain behind the kidnap of one hundred and twenty six students of Bethel Baptist Secondary School, Maraban Damishi, chukun Local Gvernment Area of Kaduna State on 5th July 2021, where over thirty students and several staff of Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri were abducted about four months ago”.

“They regained their freedom after several millions of naira was paid as ransom by the parents and well wishers of the abductees.

“The present disagreement between different factions of the bandits is a welcome development and is coming on the heels of relentless clampdown on armed bandits by our gallant security forces. Several of the most notorious armed bandits’ leaders have either been killed or arrested by the security forces”, the sources said. 

The source added that his demise is a big plus in the fight against the ravaging bandits in the Northern part of Nigeria.
