Bandits Shot Dead On Kaduna-Zaria Road


Troops of the Nigerian Army have gunned down bandits along the Kaduna-Zaria road in Igabi local government of Kaduna State.

The troops, responding quickly to credible intelligence, set up an ambush position at the location, killing two bandits in the process.

Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State, disclosed in a statement on Wednesday.

“On entering the area, the bandits sprang the ambush and came under intense fire as they were repelled by the troops. Two of the criminals were thus neutralized,” he said.

Aruwan said the State Government received the feedback with satisfaction and praised the troops for their swiftness in responding to intelligence reports.

He said the Government conveyed its appreciation to the troops and other security forces while encouraging them to sustain the determined efforts to rout all criminal elements.

He said since many of the bandits escaped with gunshot wounds, the Government hereby appeals to communities in the general area to report any questionable persons seeking medical attention.
