Two bandits’ commanders identified as Baldo and Baban Yara, together with dozens of their foot soldiers, have been killed by Nigerian troops.

The duo were behind the coordination of movement and exchange of abducted victims within camps in the Zamfara/Katsina axis.

According to defence intelligence source, the terrorists were killed on Saturday in a deadly military operation along the Zamfara/Katsina axis.

“Our troops engaged the terrorists at Aliero West axis and succeeded in killing the two bandit kingpins and 28 of their foot soldiers. Lately, our troops have intensified their aggressive operation in the North West and are pounding terrorists heavily.

“We want to rid the region of criminal elements so that farmers can carry out their agricultural activities without delay,” said a military intelligence operative.

Meanwhile, a local source working with the troops as a security volunteer revealed that the operation was swift as no terrorists sighted were spared.

“The military worked on the intelligence in ambushing and eliminating the warlords and their followers mostly riding on motorcycles.

“If this operation is sustained, our farmers will surely return to the farms while, hopefully, we will have a peaceful Ramadan period of fasting, which is just around the corner.”
