Police neutralise 12 suspected bandits in Bauchi State

By Olaide Ayinde, Bauchi.

The Police Command in Bauchi State says it has neutralised 12 suspected kidnappers and bandits during a raid in Alkaleri Local Government Area of the state.


The police command said this in a statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Ahmad Wakil, on Monday in Bauchi.


He said that the police also seized weapons and motorcycles from the bandits.


Wakil said that a joint operation of security operatives engaged the suspects in four hideouts at Mansur, Digare, Gwana and Dajin Madam in Alkaleri Forest.


“Following the hot exchange, the superior fire-power by the operatives left 12 of the kidnappers neutralized, while others were subdued, dislodged and they scampered in disarray into the nearby bushes with possible gunshot wounds and abandoned their camps.


“Consequently, weapons and operational motorcycles had been recovered during the operation,” he said.


Wakil said that the police command had intensified patrols to apprehend the fleeing members of the syndicate.
