“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.
