Notorious bandits Kachallah, Madagwal, 12 others killed in faceoff with rival groups in Zamfara

Two notorious bandit kingpins, Kachala Gwande and Kachallah Madagwal, and 12 others have been killed following a confrontation involving three rival bandit groups at Kaurar Zomo village in the Kunchin Kalgo district of Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

This was disclosed in post by Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad.

The three rival groups involved in the clash were Alhaji Tsauni, Kachallah Jafaru, and Kachallah Gwandu’s groups.

According to Makama, they clashed in a fierce gun battle on Thursday at approximately 1545 hours, resulting in the reported death of 12 bandits from the three factions.

Jafaru, a notorious bandit kingpin known to operate from Faskari LGA in Katsina State, descended upon Kaurar Zomo village, which serves as Tsauni’s stronghold, under undisclosed circumstances that led to the violent confrontation.

The security expert explained that Jafaru’s fighters were overpowered and naturalised by Gwande and his fighters.

The fight, however, escalated to other enclaves shortly after the news of Gwande’s death broke, resulting in another heavy gun battle with Kachallah Madagwal’s group who was nutrialised in the aftermath of the shootout.

The report added that several bandits who sustained severe gunshot wounds were promptly evacuated to Munhaye Health Facility for urgent medical attention.

“The people of the area were currently trooping to the battleground to see the dead bodies of the neutralized bandits,” he concluded.
