Troops have destroyed bandits camp along Gwagwada general area of Chikun local government area linking with Kaduna-Abuja Road
This was confirmed by the Kaduna State government on Wednesday, just as bandits killed two persons in Igabi local government area
In a statement, the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan explained that,
“troops under the auspices of Operation Thunder Strike have continued fighting patrols in Gwagwada general area of Chikun local government area which connects with the Kaduna-Abuja highway.”
According to the statement,
“An operational feedback to the Kaduna State Government revealed that the troops conducted clearance patrols to Napayako and Dajin Wuya, during which several bandit camps were destroyed.
“The patrol followed an earlier attack by bandits on hunters in the forest, when two hunters were left with gunshot wounds.
“During the clearance operation, the troops mobilized to the location with some hunters who escaped the prior attack. While the camps were dislodged, one of the wounded hunters, Yohanna Yakubu, was found. The other hunter, Isuwa Tanko, was eventually confirmed dead.”
“Governor Nasir El-Rufai received the feedback with gratitude, praising the morale and resilience of the troops.
“In a sad development, armed bandits attacked Garu village of Igabi local government area in the early hours of today, killing two locals, Aliyu Daiyabu and Safiyanu Muhammad.
“Governor El-Rufai sent his condolences to the families of the two killed in Igabi local government area, and of the hunter found dead in Chikun local government area, while offering prayers for the repose of their souls. He also wished the injured hunter a quick recovery.” The statement said
