A band of hunters and mystic power practitioners have approached the Kebbi State Government requesting for permission to storm bandits hideouts in the forests and bring them to justice.
The hunters and the masters of the mystic arts or the Yan Tauris, as they are commonly called, are asking for the permission because they are tired of the mayhem the bandits are causing, especially obstructing farmers from accessing their farms in the new rainy season.
So far, the locals, working hand-in-hand with state security, captured over 80 bandits in Kamusu forest of Sakaba LGA where the abducted students of FGC Birnin-Yauri were taken into last Friday.
Based on these achievements Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu at the weekend host the local hunters and mystical men of invisible spirits (known as ‘yan tauri across the state, approved their demand and charged them to go after bandits and all sorts of criminals hibernating in the forests and flush them out of their hideouts.
He told them to work with the conventional Security Forces in the state to achieve the desired goal. He also appealed to Security agents not to interfere with the mystic men whenever they are on the move but give them needed support from the rear.
