Zamfara State:- 35 Bandits Killed As Military Rescues 40 HostagesJ

Posted By:  on  April 12, 2019


The military on Friday said 35 bandits have been killed with 40 abducted people rescued, including children, women and men during operations to tackle banditry in Zamfara and other states.

The Acting Force Information Officer of Operation Sharan Daji (OPSD), Major Clement Abiade, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.

He added that a total of 18 suspected bandits’ informants, rustlers, kidnappers and logistics suppliers were also arrested.

The statement read in part:

The soldiers conduct day and night patrols deep into the forest areas to deny the bandits freedom of action while building the confidence of the local population.

The intensity and redoubled efforts in the conduct of military activities were complemented by Exercise Harbin Kunama III, which commenced on April 1.

The operations have achieved tremendous successes, leading to the recovery of weapons, ammunition and rustled animals in various parts of their area of operation.

During the period, the Air Component of the operation carried out several air strikes around Kagara, Gando, Fankama, Fete and Dumburum Forests.

The forests provide sanctuaries and hideouts where kidnapped victims are often hidden but the air strikes are precision activities designed to avoid collateral damage.

Also one Muhammed Iso suspected to be a notorious kidnapper was intercepted in Niger Republic in collaboration with the security forces in the country.

The bandit hails from Naagwalam in Katsina State and confessed to being a member of a five-man syndicate responsible for kidnapping and highway robbery in Batsari and Jibiya axis.

It is instructive to state that the suspects arrested have been handed over to Nigerian Police and other agencies for further investigation and possible prosecution.

It is significant to mention that subsequent operations in the forests led to the rescue of 40 abductees consisted of men, women and children from communities in Zamfara State.

The OPSD spokesman added that the troops recovered four AK47 rifles, two locally-made pump action rifles, 17 rounds of 7.62mm (special) ammunition and 20 cartridges.
