Some angry residents of Charanchi Local Government of Katsina State, Northwest Nigeria have set ablaze three killed suspected armed group members.
The armed men were reported to have come to the community’s cattle market with sophisticated weapons but it was not clear if they were going to attack the community.
An eyewitness told our reporter that they were however being trailed by members of the vigilante group in the community as they came in.
“They came to charanchi with sophisticated weapons unknown to them, vigilante group followed them,” said
Hassan Nuuman, a villager who witnessed the incident.
“The vigilante searched the bandits and found Ak-47 in their possession, tied them with ropes and set them ablaze with the help of some residents,” he added.
“All of them were wearing a long overall gown apparently to conceal what they were carrying.”
“On seeing the rifle, the people of the market descend on them, killed two of them instantly and set them ablaze.”
Charanchi Local Government is located on the highway just 37 kilometers to the state capital.
