Auwalun Daudawa , the notorious bandit leader, who led the abduction of over 300 students of Government Science Secondary School Kankara, Katsina State, has been killed.
Daudawa had laid down his arms and accepted Governor Bello Matawalle’s peace initiative on February 8.
He had surrendered 20 AK-47 rifles, 20 Magazines, one General Purpose Machine Gun (GPMG), one Rocket-Propelled Grenade (RPG) and several ammunitions to the Zamfara State government on the day he repented with five of his comrades.
However, he was killed following his return to the forest to continue his banditry a few days ago.
The Commissioner for Security and Home Affairs in Zamfara State, Abubakar Dauran, who confirmed his death, said Daudawa left Gusau two days ago.
He had reportedly told some people that he was going to attend one of his relatives’ wedding.
However, he rustled over 100 cows and killed the herdsman in charge, the Commissioner said.
In retaliation, some people around the area organised and killed him too, he added.
