Locals Were Hailing Ansaru Terrorists For Defending Them Against Bandits – Eyewitness
In what seems like a battle of supremacy between the two terror groups, fighters of the Ansaru terrorists organization have engaged in a bloody gunfight with notorious bandits in Birnin-Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
According to the reports by Daily Trust, members of the Ansaru group were preaching and trying to indoctrinate locals when armed bandits opened fire on the crowd.
An eyewitness disclosed to Daily Trust that fighters of the Ansaru terrorists group, who were heavily armed with sophisticated weapons, subdued the bandits, forcing them to flee into the bushes.
The eyewitness, who was identified as Ishaq Usman Kafai, added that residents of the community were hailing members of the Ansaru terrorists group for defending them against the bandits’ assault.
After the incident, they continued preaching to the locals urging them to pick up arms and fight against bandits and the federal government in order to establish an Islamic State.
This is indeed disturbing, it shows that if there is no swift intervention by the federal government, the terrorists will recruit hundreds of gullible citizens who rely on them for protection.
