Troops eliminate 4 bandits, recover arms in Kaduna – DHQ

The Defence Headquarters says troops of “Operation Accord” on Wednesday killed four suspected bandits in an encounter at Jeka Da Rabi area of Kaduna State along the Kaduna-Abuja expressway.


The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.


Enenche said that the troops mobilised to the area and laid ambush, following the reception of credible intelligence on the movement of bandits from the Kachia area.


He said that the gallant troops made contact with the bandits and engaged them with superior firepower, thereby neutralising four of them, while others escaped with gunshots wounds.


“The troops also recovered one AK 47 rifle and five rounds of 9mm ammunition with a magazine.


“Presently, the gallant troops have continued to dominate the general area with aggressive patrols, in search of the fleeing bandits.


“The Military High Command congratulates the troops for their dexterity and encourages them to intensify the onslaught against the criminal elements in the country,” he said.
