The Katsina State Police Command has given an update concerning the notorious Zamfara bandit leader, Ado Aleru who was recently given a chieftaincy title in Zamfara state.
 
Aleru is said to have killed many innocent villagers including innocent women and children.
 
Katsina State police said Aleru is still on its wanted list.
 
We had reported that the Emir of Sabon Birnin Yandoto in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State, Aliyu Garba Marafa, conferred the traditional title of Sarkin Fulani (Chief of Fulanis) on Aleru in a colourful ceremony held last Saturday. 
 
Speaking to Channels TV, spokesperson for the police in Katsina, SP Gambo Isah, explained that the command had declared Aleru wanted for crimes such as culpable homicide, terrorism, armed robbery, and kidnapping in Katsina.
 
According to the PPRO, Aleru is also wanted for the killing of over 100 residents of Kadisau village in Faskari Local Government Area of the state. 
 
The Command had declared 47-year-old Aleru wanted in June, placing a bounty of N5 million on him – dead or alive.
 
The suspect is accused of being a notorious leader of groups of bandits terrorising communities in Katsina and Zamfara states.
 
Days before he was declared wanted by the police, Aleru allegedly led a group of bandits to attack Kadisau village on June 9.
 
The armed men, numbering over 200 and armed with sophisticated weapons, invaded the village on motorbikes. At least 20 villagers were killed with many others left injured during the attack.
