At least nine alleged bandits were killed and others were apprehended by a local vigilante group in Gulu city, Lapai Local Government Area, Niger State, when they were attempting to raise ransom from the families of abducted victims.

It was learned that the bandits had previously raided Gulu town a few days before, during which several citizens were captured and a ransom was requested before they could be freed.

According to eyewitnesses, the victims’ relatives raised the ransom and called the robbers, who gave them instructions on how to deliver the money.

The family members went to the location where the money was to be delivered on Sunday night, March 15. The bandits supposedly ordered some of them to return to town to buy them food and other edibles.

On their way to the grocery store, one of the victim’s relatives was confronted by a vigilante who questioned as to what they were doing in the park. After hearing about their plight, the vigilante party organised and asked the victims’ relatives to lead them to the location where the robbers were hiding.
