Troops of the Nigerian Army have repelled an attack by bandits along the Kaduna-Zaria road in Igabi LGA of Kaduna state.

Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna commissioner for internal security and home affairs, in a statement on Wednesday, said two suspected bandits were killed by the troops, adding that others escaped with bullet wounds.

He said the troops, while acting on credible intelligence, deployed officers to track the gunmen.

“In an operational feedback to the Kaduna State Government, it was revealed that the troops, responding quickly to credible intelligence, set up an ambush position at the location,” the statement reads.


“On entering the area, the bandits sprang the ambush and came under intense fire as they were stoutly repelled by the troops. Two of the criminals were thus neutralised.

“The Kaduna State Government received the feedback with satisfaction, and praised the troops for their swiftness in responding to intelligence reports.

“The Government conveyed its appreciation to the troops and other security forces, while encouraging them to sustain the determined efforts to rout all criminal elements.


“Since many of the bandits escaped with gunshot wounds, the Government hereby appeals to communities in the general area to report any questionable persons seeking medical attention.

“The security operations room can be reached on 09034000060 and 08170189999.”

The commissioner added that patrols by troops will continue in the area.

The development comes amid continuous operations by security operatives in the state and other parts of the country as part of efforts to improve security.
