The government of Niger State in the northern part of Nigeria has employed the services of a 70-year-old voodooist in Zuguruma town, near Mashegu Local Government Area of the state to help in its fight against bandits.
The government brought on a combined force of voodooists and local hunters to help wage war against bandits killing people, and destroying communities.
Leading spiritual warfare was a 70-year-old woman in Zuguruma. Already, the voodooist led force have confronted the bandits headlong and about 40 of them have been killed.
Approaching the den of the bandits, the woman, villagers said, instructed the hunters to shoot into the air to draw the bandits out.
The bandits were equally said to have returned fire until they exhaust their bullets and the hunters subsequently descended on them and killed 40 of them,” she said.
None of the hunters died. Some of the leaders of the bandits have also been arrested and handed over to the police.
