A terror leader, Nasiru Kachalla has been killed following the outbreak of fighting among two terror gangs that have terrorized the people of Kaduna State.

Kachalla was responsible for the reprehensible killing last January of the young seminarian, Michael Nnadi and also of Mrs. Bola Ataga, the wife of a Kaduna State medical doctor that had been widely praised for his philanthropy to the community.

Security agencies confirmed to the Kaduna State Government that the terror leader, Kachalla was killed during infighting among the bandits bickering over their loot.

Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, disclosed that Kachalla was killed in a clash between his gang and a rival group of bandits.

“Human intelligence networks confirmed that criminals from the rival sides were also killed, including some of Kachalla’s lieutenants.

“The clash occurred in a forest around the boundaries of Kajuru-Chikun local government areas of Kaduna Central Senatorial District. A dispute over a large herd of rustled cattle is said to have triggered the fatal confrontation.

“Kachalla and his gang were involved in several crimes, including kidnappings, killings and banditry on the Kaduna-Abuja road and also in the Chikun/Kajuru general areas.
