The Nigerian Military has captured a dreaded bandits’ leader and cattle rustler, Alhaji Goma Sama’ila.
Sources say Samaila was arrested in Kaduna State on Friday evening.
He is reportedly responsible for organising several thefts of cows in Zamfara, Kaduna, Katsina and other North-West states of Nigeria.
He was said to have participated in several abductions across the states.
A source said, “Nigerian troops arrested Goma Sama’ila, one of the “most wanted” and notorious bandits’ leaders terrorising Zamfara, Kaduna, Katsina and other north western states in Nigeria.”
The development comes amid an intense military intervention in the region that has been ravaged by activities of bandits and other Fulani militia.
