Four bandits killed in ambush in Chikun and Birnin Gwari LGAs of Kaduna State

Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan, on Sunday confirmed the killing of “at least” four bandits by security agents in an ambush in Chikun and Birnin Gwari Local Government Areas of the State.

Three rifles and one axe were recovered from the bandits, who were part of the syndicate terrorising communities in various parts of the State.

Mr Aruwan said in a statement that the operation was based on operational feedback from troops of Operation Thunder Strike (OPTS), who received intelligence on bandits’ movement from Katika village towards Antenna in Chikun LGA.

Aruwan said in response to this, the troops laid an ambush at Antenna village, and as the bandits approached, the troops opened fire on them, killing four on the spot.

He added that more bandits had been neutralized during aerial missions conducted around their locations in Chikun and Birnin Gwari local government areas.

He said Governor Nasir El-Rufai had commended the troops for a swift action that led to the successful elimination of the bandits.
