A battle of supremacy by two bandit groups over the control of some mining sites has led to the killing of scores of terrorists in the Northern region of Nigeria.

A credible intelligence according to PRNigeria revealed that the brutal clash was between Jammatu Ansarul Musulmin Biladis Sunna, also known as Ansaru, and Dogo Gide’s groups of bandits at Kuyallo area, Birnin Gwari local government area of Kaduna state.

“A wanted terrorist leader, Mudi and his son Murtala, on Dogo Gide’s side, lost their lives.

“Dogo Gide’s side also suffered severe losses, including close associates and some family members.

“The rivalry is a battle of supremacy over the control of mining sites.

“There are several gold mining sites in Birnin Gwari. Most mined products are smuggled outside Nigeria into Niger, which implies strong connection with criminal elements in the Republic of Niger.

“The recent clash draws attention towards more rivalry attacks in days ahead considering the encroachment of JAS and ISWAP elements in the Northwest.”

Also, a defence intelligence source who confirmed the rival clash between the terrorist factions, told PRNigeria that the casualty figure was high on both sides going by the sighted corpses of littered in the affected areas.
