The military operation tagged: “Operation Idan Raini” killed three bandits in Zamfara on Friday, according to Clement Abiade, assistant director, army public relations.

In a statement made available to NAN in Gusau, Zamfara state capital, Abiade said “the army troops encountered the bandits in the notorious Dansadau bush on Friday”.

Abiade said many of the bandits had been overpowered by the soldiers and therefore escaped with gunshot wounds.

He said three motorcycles were recovered from the fleeing hoodlums, and that the troops had continued with their manhunt for them.

The army spokesman also disclosed that the troops supported by local vigilance groups had arrested a cattle rustler, Usman Ikkuwa, at Teke village in Maru local government area of the state.

He said Ikkuwa was part of Buba Banme’s gang who had terrorised many communities in the state and rustled many cows especially in Sabon-Birni.

Abiade said the gang terrorised the people until the leader, Buba Banme, was arrested in 2017 when he mentioned Ikkuwa as a member of the seven-man group, and was accordingly declared wanted by security personnel.

He said the army was working in synergy with other security agencies to rid the state of all criminal elements.
