The story of many criminals who troubled Nigerians but later died unfortunately while exchanging bullets with higher powers might intrigue you to hear. Their unfortunate ending reminded me of an Igbo adage that says, "He who lives by the sword, dies by the sword". These well-known notorious criminals started from the street causing pain to many people within their vicinity. With time, the majority of them ventured into higher crimes before they were eventually gunned down by security operatives and rival groups.

One noticeable thing about these criminals is the fact that they were thirsty for blood. Almost all the four criminals on our list today harbored illegal weapons which they used in carrying out their criminal activities before they eventually met their death while fighting with the sword.

In our today's political report, we will be listing 4 notorious criminals that troubled Nigeria in the past and ended up dying by the sword.
