According to the statement by Enenche, “in continuation of the operational mandate to stamp banditry and untoward activities out of North-West zone of the country, troops of Operation SAHEL SANITY on 14 July 2020 neutralised 6 armed bandits.

“Acting on credible Human Intelligence, troops of Operation SAHEL SANITY backed by helicopter gunships of the Air Component of Operation HADARIN DAJI stormed the bandits’ enclave at Komani Hills within Rukudawa general area of Zamfara State and made contact with the criminals elements.

“The gallant troops overwhelmed the bandits with superior fire power killing 6 of them while others fled with grave  gun shots wounds. One GPMG, one AK 47 rifle, one magazine and  34 motorcycles were recovered.

“Relatedly, troops of Operation SAHEL SANITY on 13 July 2020 responded to a distress call on an attempt by armed bandits to rustle cows at Kasele village in Batsari LGA of Katsina State.
