TheNigerian army says its troops killed 21 armed bandits in Tunga Daji, Anka local government area of Zamfara state.

In recent times, suspected bandits have killed scores of people in Zamfara.

In a statement on Thursday, Texas Chukwu, spokesman of the army, said the troops recovered weapons but lost two soldiers in the process.

Chukwu said the soldiers encountered the bandits while on a patrol.

He said many bandits escaped with gunshot wounds.

“Unfortunately we lost an officer and a soldier during the encounter. The remains of the officer and soldier have been evacuated to Federal Medical Center Gusau,” Chukwu said.

He said they recovered five AK 47 assault rifles, one light machine gun, five magazines and 35 rounds of 7,62mm special ammunition.

He said the troops have been mobilised to “comb the general area and arrest any fleeing bandit.”
