It was a black Tuesday in Kebbi State after a group of vigilante members numbering 63 were reportedly trapped and killed in an ambush by bandits operating in Kebbi State, northwest Nigeria.

According to a report on Tuesday, a popular group identified as “Yan sa kai” a Hausa name meaning “volunteers” were said to have drawn from communities seeking to end the activities of bandits in the state.

The BBC said the tragic incident occurred after the local guards launched an onslaught against the bandits in Zuru Emirate of Kebbi State.

It was gathered that the bandits during the gun duel retreated into the bush in a tactical move allowing the vigilante to fall into their ambush.

A security report from a source narrates that, “Unfortunately for the vigilante, they thought they were winning not knowing that it was a strategic move to ambush them and before they could realise, they were already in the middle of the fight and surrounded by heavy firepower.”

Also, a government official in Kebbi said they have received reports of the attack but are yet to have details of what really happened and the number of casualties said to have been recorded in the aftermath.

“Bandits attack is also mostly a daily occurrence. We pray that we see to the end of this evil. We shall communicate appropriately when we have details of the reports from Zuru” he said.
