Three suspected bandits, including a notorious informant, have been killed by the Police Anti-Banditry team. The four persons were killed in a gun battle in Dogon Fadama in Kontagora Local Government Area of Niger State.
Buba Baromi, the informant, was gunned down at Damba Forest, where he was hiding. Baromi, who had earlier sustained gun injuries, in an earlier encounter, met his Waterloo, during a fire exchange with Policemen.
It was gathered that the deceased Baromi had also led different teams for successful attacks and abduction of numerous persons. The Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Wasiu Abiodun, could not be reached for reactions on the development.
