Troops have killed two bandits and injured many others in the Fondisho general area, along the Kaduna-Zaria road in Kaduna State’s Igabi Local Government Area.
In a statement, Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna State Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, stated that in an operational feedback to the State government, the troops set up an ambush position at the location and achieved great results in an attempt to curb the activities of bandits in the State.
According to the statement, when the bandits entered the area, they set up an ambush and came under heavy fire as they were repelled by the troops; two of the criminals were thus neutralised.
“The Kaduna State Government received the feedback with satisfaction, and praised the troops for their swiftness in responding to intelligence reports,” the statement said.
According to the statement, the government conveyed its appreciation to the troops and other security forces and encouraged them to sustain the determined efforts to rout all criminal elements in the State and in the country.
Since many of the bandits escaped with gunshot wounds, the statement appealed to communities in the general area to report any questionable person seeking medical attention.
