The Benue police command says its operatives have killed two notorious bandits, and recovered weapons in Katsina-Ala LGA of the state.

In a statement on Wednesday, Sewuese Anene, the police public relations officer (PPRO), said the operatives acted on credible intelligence about the regrouping of bandits at De-Mtsa village, Katsina-Ala.

Anene said a team from Operation Zenda Joint Task Force (JTF), led by Felix Nomiyugh, its commander, invaded the area and engaged the bandits in an intense gun duel.

“Upon arrival at the scene, on March 27, the bandits engaged the police in a gun duel, but the superior fire power from the operatives dislodged them,” Anene said.

“Consequently, while two of the bandits sustained gunshot injuries and were confirmed dead at the hospital, one was arrested and the others escaped with wounds, but they are currently being trailed by the operatives.

“Exhibits recovered from the scene include one type 06 rifle, three AK-47 magazines loaded with 7.6mm ammunition, 80 other ammunition, camouflage uniforms and assorted phones.”

The PPRO added that Emmanuel Adesina, the commissioner of police in the state, applauded the officers for their bravery, urging them to always take the war to the doorsteps of the criminals.
