Their mugshots were splashed across a banner in rows and columns. Notably among them include, Bello Turji, Ado Ailero, Halilu Sububu, Baleri, Sani Gurgu, Ali Kachalla, Dogo Nahali, Sani Dangote and Umaru Dan Nigeria.

Others include; Ishiya Kwashen, Nagala, Qwaska Dankarami, Nagona, Abu Radde, Monore, Leko, Dan-Da, Nasanda and Mamudu Tainange.

Many of these terror leaders with their team members wreak havoc in rural communities in Zamfara, Sokoto, Kaduna and some parts of Niger States.

Ailero and Turji are the most notorious among those on the wanted list.

Turji, born in 1994 in Shinkafi local government area of Zamfara State, became notorious in Nigeria, especially in the northwestern region where he left behind stories of sorrow and blood. Apart from imposing multi-million tasks of farming communities, Turji was responsible for the lives of some passengers who were set ablaze in a bus around Sokoto.

The government would later formed an alliance with him, but it failed as the terror leader claimed he was betrayed by the government.

Like Turji, Ailero is also a source of nightmare to locals and the government. According to Katsina State Police Command, Ailero had killed over 100 villagers in the state.

“We are looking for Aleru because of the acts of terrorism he committed in the town of Kadiso where he killed over 100 locals,” Gambo Isa, spokesman for the command said. “We were together with former Police Commissioner, Sanusi Buba and journalists at Kadiso where we saw how he killed people including women and children, as well as destroying food items and animals.”

Stunnigly, the bigwig was corronated as Sarkin Fulani of Yandoto emirate by the emirate’s Emir, Alhaji Aliyu Marafa who was later suspended by the state government.
