Even bandits in Nigeria have fun and also enjoy their loot somewhere.

It may not be in the open but they also enjoy themselves.

The Nigerian Army discovered a location where these men who steal, kidnap and attack communities have fun in the course of military operation in northern Nigeria.

It was a location in Kaduna State, one of the states in Nigeria that have experienced attacks by bandits of late. 

Bottles of beer of different brands littered the whole place, giving credence to claims that substance abuse have a link to criminal tendencies. 

A statement by the Nigerian Army says troops and Vigilante group raided a camp in Kidandan general area in Kaduna State and killed a bandit while others escaped with gunshot injuries.

In that operation troops also recovered an AK 47 rifle with 25 rounds 7.62mm. 

A sim card holder with the number written on it was also recovered at the scene, apparently one of the numbers that they use to contact the family of any kidnap victim. The number was not going through when Bounce News tried to put a call through.
