Two bandits killled by military troops in kaduna state

 The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, has confirmed the killing of two suspected bandits around Birnin-Gwari, in the Birnin-Gwari Local Government Area of the state.

Aruwan said the two suspects were neutralised when operatives of the ‘Troops of Operation Forest Sanity’ embarked on the continued onslaught on bandits terrorising the area.

The commissioner, who made this known in a statement on Thursday, said the troops encountered the bandits while on clearance patrol in the community.

He said, “Troops of Operation Forest Sanity made further gains as they continued fighting patrols and clearance operations in the Birnin Gwari area.

“In an operational feedback to the Kaduna State Government, it was reported that the troops embarked on the clearance patrol along the Birnin Gwari-Doka-Sabon Layi-Kuriga-Maganda-Farin Ruwa road.

“The troops made contact with the bandits at Farin Ruwa. Two bandits were neutralised in the encounter, as the criminal elements were forced to withdraw under the troops’ superior firepower.

“The Kaduna State Government received the development with satisfaction, and commended the troops for another successful round of operations. Clearance and fighting patrols continue in the general area.”
