A mob killed three suspected bandit informants at Zangon Aya community in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The victims are one Abdullahi Mohammed Gobirawa, his wife Binta Abdullahi and his son Hassan Abdullahi.
The State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the incident happened on Monday afternoon when the angry mob stormed the home of the deceased identified to be informants to bandits who are responsible for the recent kidnappings in the area.
After killing the three family members, the mob also looted their property before setting their house ablaze.
Receiving the reports, Governor Nasir El-Rufai expressed sadness at the violent actions of the citizens, and strongly condemned the extra-judicial killings.
He stressed that lawful means alone should be adopted in confronting suspicions of criminality, as the destructive practice of self-help would only result in greater harm.
The Governor, therefore, directed security agencies to conduct thorough investigations into the incident and urged citizens to maintain order.
He also cautioned against stereotyping of any sort and appealed for consistent recourse to the constituted agencies.
