The Niger Police anti-banditry team has killed a notorious bandits’ informant, Buba Baromi along with three others during a gun battle in Dogon Fadama in Kontagora Local Government Area of the State.
Blaze Newz gathered that Baromi was gunned down at his hideout in Damba Forest area of the State on Tuesday.
Baromi, along with his group, was taken unawares where he was recuperating from gunshot injuries sustained during previous encounters with security agents.
Blaze Newz learnt that the anti-banditry team was led to his hideout by local hunters in the area.
A source told our correspondent that while Baromi was killed on the second day of the gun fight, the other members of his gang were killed on the first day by the policemen.
The source also said the deseased was not only an informant to bandits, but was involved in leading them to targeted areas to attack and abduct people.
“He led bandits to rustle cattle and attack communities at Dogon Fadama. During those attacks, many innocent lives were lost,” the source said.
Baromi, it was also learnt, was responsible for the attacks unleashed on communities at Dogon Fadama in the middle of last month.
