Troops of operation Forest Sanity have rescued nine abductees in Kaso, Chikun LGA of Kaduna state.

Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna commissioner for internal security and home affairs, announced this in a statement on Monday.

He added that the troops recovered 90 cows and four motorcycles left behind by the attackers.

“The troops engaged bandits on the Tantatu high ground, as the bandits abandoned their camp and fled further into the forest,” the statement reads.


“The troops searched the camp and rescued nine kidnapped persons, identified as: Salama Oliver Husseini Odu, Danjuma Jakanwa Ezekiel Garba, Obadiah Moses, Taiwo Isaac, Buky Isaac, Ado Adamu and Maigari Shekarau.

“Initial debriefing of the rescued victims revealed that they had all been kidnapped around the Gurara Dam area.

“The troops also recovered 90 cattle left behind by the fleeing bandits. The animals will be handed over to the Kaduna State Livestock Regulatory Authority for proper identification.


“Further clearance patrols to Bawa Rikasa hill led to the recovery of four motorcycles belonging to the bandits.

“The nine rescued persons will undergo further debriefing and examination before being reunited with their families.

“Fighting patrols will continue in the general area.”

The development comes days after troops of operation Forest Sanity killed four bandits in Chikun LGA of the state.
