“In Tsanyawa, thugs set three vigilante members ablaze in a closed room. Two of them died while the third is currently receiving treatment,” he said.

“Two members were killed by armed robbers in Gabasawa when they engaged them in physical combat,” he added.

“Also, a member called Iliyasu was stabbed to death in Nassarawa in an attempt to arrest some criminals.”
