By Mohammed Tijjani, Kaduna.
The Kaduna State Government says troops of Operation Forest Sanity have killed two suspected bandits in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of the state.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan, said this in a statement issued on Thursday in Kaduna.
Aruwan said the troops made further gains, as they continued fighting patrols and clearance operations in the Birnin Gwari area.
He said that the development was confirmed in an operational feedback given to the state government.
“It was reported that the troops embarked on the clearance patrol along the Birnin Gwari-Doka-Sabon Layi-Kuriga-Maganda-Farin Ruwa road,” he added.
Aruwan said that the troops made contact with the bandits at Farin Ruwa and neutralized two of them, while others were forced to withdraw because of the troops’ superior firepower.
“The Kaduna State Government received the development with satisfaction, and commended the troops for another successful round of operations,” he added.
The commissioner said that clearance and fighting patrols had continued in the general area.
