Zamfara: Troops raid bandits camp, set hostages free

Troops of the Operation Sharan Daji have neutralised bandits in raids on some camps and routes in Maradun, Tsafe and Zurmi Local Government Areas of Zamfara State.

A statement by the Force Information Officer, Operation Sharan Daji, Colonel Muhammad Dole, said during a recent clearance operation along Mashema, Kwadi, Kalage, Gambiru and Kagara axis, heavy fight ensued between troops and bandits.

He said due to overwhelming military firepower, a reasonable number of bandits were neutralised and their camps were set ablaze.

This successful feat, he said, has created relative peace and spurred massive returns of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to their villages in Zurmi Local Government Area.

He said during another encounter at Daban-Doka village near Dansadau, Zamfara State, troops laid ambush along identified routes and neutralised 20 bandits. Some bandits escaped with gunshot wounds and several motorcycles were burnt.

“In another development, the troops commenced aggressive day and night patrols around Kyaranke and Giwabawa villages in Kanoma District of Maru Local Government Area, following a tip off. Additionally, the troops in their recent exploits apprehended two notorious bandits, who were terrorising Maradun town and its environs. The bandits are undergoing interrogation.”

The Force Commander, Operation Sharan Daji, Major General Mohammed Mohammed, said the troops are poised to ensuring quick restoration of peace in all the vulnerable areas in Kaduna and Zamfara states.

He urged the populace to continue to give credible information that will aid the operation.
