9 Armed Bandits Killed By Soldiers During Patrol In Zamfara State

In continuation of the concerted efforts

of clearing cattle rustlers, armed

bandits and kidnappers in the north

western geo-political region, troops of

1 Division in conjunction with other

security agencies have been making

tremendous progress.

It is inline with this that troops of 223

Battalion, 1 Brigade, Nigerian Army

embarked on a patrol to Maru Local

Government Area of Zamfara State.

During the patrol, the team

encountered and engaged notorious

armed bandits that have been wrecking

havoc on the communities.

The troops killed 9 of them, while a few

escaped with gun shot wounds.

The team recovered 3 AK-47 rifles, 4

AK-47 rifle magazines, 5 rounds of

7.62mm (Special) ammunition, a

machete and 24 motorcycles after a

thorough combing of the general area.

In a related development and in a sheer

act of bravery, local vigilantes at

‘Yargada village, Gusau Local

Government Area apprehended another

armed bandit.

Buoyed by this success, the troops

morale is very high and are determined

to continue to enhance the general

security of their respective areas of

operation through patrols, raids and

clearance operations.

It is in the light of this that we solicit

for more cooperation and support from

the public.

You are please requested to kindly

disseminate the above information to

the public through your medium.

Thank you for your kind cooperation.
