Meanwhile, the military is yet to make it public, but a close source to one of the communities told newsmen that the arrest of the bandits’ leader has greatly reduced their activities in the area in the last week.

“Jack Bros Yellow is the leader of one of the three groups of bandits that are operating around Shiroro, Rafi, and Munya local government area, the source added.
“Jack Bros Yellow is among those who asked some communities to pay N3million for peace to reign but when the money was paid, the other gang leaders short-changed him and his boys came and kidnapped about nine women from Galape village after Galkogo, Shiroro local government in January this year.”
“He demanded a ransom of N10million for the release of those women, and they are still under his custody since that January 5th until his arrest last week, but we are yet to see the women.”
