A report by Daily Trust revealed that 11 of the suspects were executed in the Gada community of Bungudu Local Government Area while four others were neutralized at

Kaura Namoda Local Government Area of the state.

The report added that the suspects were rounded up by the vigilantes at a GSM market in Kaura Namoda town.
