Troops kill bandit leader Rufa’i Maikaji, dozens of his fighters in Kaduna

The statement said: “The aerial missions in which ‘Rufai Maikaji’ and his gang were neutralized were conducted in late February when he (Rufai Maikaji) and the bandits under his command, on sighting ground troops, escaped from Anaba village of Igabi LGA where they killed some citizens, burnt houses and kidnapped some locals.

“‘Rufai Maikaji’ is said to have begun his ignoble career as an errand boy to some deadly bandits in and around Sabon Birni general area of Igabi LGA. From this position, he grew to become a household name in banditry.”

According to the statement, the state government, military, police, SSS and all agencies assured residents of the communities that suffered the brutality of ‘Rufai Maikaji’ that aggressive pursuit of other accomplices who escaped the onslaught is in full swing, and they will be caught sooner rather than later.

“In his response, Governor Nasir El-Rufai praised the military for taking down the bandit leader and his accomplices.

“The Governor further assured them of the firm commitment of the government and people of Kaduna State in the ongoing operations against the bandits throughout the state,” the statement noted.
