Nigerian troops kill 2 terrorists, clear hideouts in Kaduna LG


Troops of Operation Forest Sanity have neutralized two bandits and cleared several hideouts in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed this in a statement signed on Tuesday.

According to operational feedback to the state government, the troops achieved these breakthroughs during fighting patrols along the Kaboresha-Rijana Forest-Kuzo-Kujeni-Gwanto-Kachia axis.

“The troops set up an ambush position along the Gwanto-Kwasau Road, and thus engaged bandits approaching the location on motorcycles. The troops neutralized two bandits and recovered three motorcycles.

“The troops also raided bandit camps in the Kutura-Rijana general area. The bandits fled into the forest on sighting the troops, who then destroyed the camps and recovered three motorcycles.

“Other items recovered include several sets of military uniforms and bandoliers,” the statement added.

Mr Aruwan noted that the onslaught against bandits is in progress and the government appeals to the general public to continue to volunteer useful information.

“Receiving the report, Governor Nasir El-Rufai expressed satisfaction and commended the troops for their committed efforts which resulted in the latest success,” the statement added.
