Security forces have killed a few bandits and destroyed their camps during clearance tasks in Igabi and Chikun neighborhood government area of Kaduna State.
The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, unveiled this in an assertion Friday.
He added that one Abdulrasheed Gambo Na Halima and Abubakar Idris Na Halima were captured as speculated collaborators by the security forces.
Aruwan said the clearance operations were conducted in Faka, Katuka, Barebari and Maguzawa.
He pointed out that an unconfirmed number of bandits were sighted on the high ground across the Maguzawa River, adding, “They were engaged by a Nigerian Air Force attack helicopter, and neutralised.”
He said the security forces equally conducted clearance patrols to Katuka, about 9km from Kangon Kadi in Chikun Local Government Area, during which one fleeing bandit was apprehended.
Aruwan added that some motorcycles, one AK47 rifle, some AK47 magazines, ammunition and drugs were recovered after razing some bandits’ camps in Udawa in Chikun.
