The police command in Katsina says its men have killed one terrorist in Unguwan Maizuma village, Danja LGA of the state.

An informant to the terrorists was also said to have been arrested when the police officers raided the area.

Gambo Isah, the command’s spokesperson, said there was a fierce gun battle on August 20, 2022 between the police force and terrorists in a black spot at Maizuma village.

According to him, the police team carried out the operation based on a credible intelligence and successfully ward off the terrorists.


He said Sule Dawa, leader of the terror group, was suspected to have escaped with gunshot wounds.

“Items like locally fabricated gun, military camouflage uniforms, machetes, dagger, bottles, gallon of spirit some quantity of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp, two boxer motorcycles, three car batteries, one sewing machine, roll of cable wire and two cooking gas cylinders were recovered from the hideouts of the terrorists”, Isah said in a statement on Sunday.

The command, he said, is intensifying its effort to arrest the gang leader and the other gangsters.


He said Idrisu Dabban-Dauda, polcie commissioner in the state, commended the efforts of the personnel in repelling the terrorists.

He also said that the commissioner had asked the team not to relent until all forms of crime are totally eradicated.
