Vigilantes in Ngaski Local Government Area of Kebbi State have neutralised three kidnappers terrorising the area on Thursday.

The success of the operation according to the local vigilantes in the Makurdi area of Ngaski was sequel to the arrest of some informants who cooperated in exposing the hideouts of the kidnappers in the forest.

This was disclosed to newsmen by the Director of Security pf the Cabinet Office, Birnin Kebbi, AbdulRahman Usman on Friday.

In a statement sent to AllNews Nigeria by Kebbi Governor's Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yahaya Sarki on Saturday, the security director explained that after the arrest of the bandits' informant, he (the informant) agreed to take the vigilantes to the bandits' hideout in the forest who engaged the vigilantes in an exchange of gunfire.

"Security reports we received from the Makurdi area ward, Ngaski Local Government Area by our vigilantes yesterday led to the arrest of an informant who promised to take our men to the kidnappers' hideout."

He narrated that the local vigilantes spent the night until the morning between the hours of 3:30 am - 4:30 am when they successfully overpowered the criminals as a result of the exchange of gunfire and killed the three bandits.

The vigilantes, he triumphantly added, returned home safely without sustaining any injury.

AbdulRahman commended the gallant efforts of the local vigilantes who according to him have been complimenting the efforts of other security operatives in combating the menace of recurring banditry.
