Bandits killed while planning an attack in Kaduna

Troops of Operation Whirl Punch have successfully neutralized bandits, including some of their leaders who were holding a meeting at an identified spot near Bula community within Yadi Forest in Giwa LGA of Kaduna state. 


Overseeing Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State Samuel Aruwan said the strike was based on credible intelligence which followed the recent elimination of some bandit kingpins along the Kaduna-Katsina border areas.


Intelligence report had earlier revealed that bandits were to converge on the area for a meeting on a deadly mission within the Yadi Forest genera area. 


The statement read; 


“Close monitoring followed, and at the agreed time, the bandits were sighted bearing arms and approaching the location on motorcycles.

“Further exploration confirmed the movements and convergence of the bandits in a group of about seven to ten members at a hub in the location.

“Upon verification, the location was struck and scores of the bandits including one Alhaji Kachalla Ragas – an ally and childhood friend of the previously neutralized Buharin Yadi – were confirmed to have been neutralized by the strike.”
