The unusual happened on Friday in Kusasu Community in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger state, when a group of bandits engaged one another in a gun battle, leading to the death of no fewer than 12 of them while scores were seriously injured.
The internal fight among this group of bandits followed a sharp disagreement between the boys and their leader, popularly referred to as Mallam Dogogide who had accused his boys of shortchanging him after operations.
According to a family close to the community, Dogogide’s action did not go down well with his boys which led to a heated argument and in the process one of his boys attempted to kill him when he opened fire but the bullet could not enter his boss.
It was at this point that Dogogide and a few loyal ones opened fire and gun down 12 of the “disgruntled ones” while others escaped for their lives.
