Nigerian troops raid two bandit camps in Kaduna

Outlaws were dislodged from a forest in Kaduna State, the Nigerian Army reported on Tuesday. The acting deputy director of the Army’s First Division, Lt.-Colonel Musa Yahaya, said troops ambushed the bandits near Dogon Dawa–Damari in Igabi County, in the northern area of Kaduna State.

The bandits were forced to retreat because of heavy pounding by soldiers. “The troops exploited the general area and recovered one Beretta pistol, one AK 47 rifle and one AK 47 rifle magazine,” according to Lt.-Col. Yahaya.

Soldiers stationed at Kwanar Mutua in Birnin Gwari county swung into action on receiving a signal of the presence of a gang of bandits in the area. “The troops engaged the criminals with overwhelming firepower, forcing them to flee in disarray into the nearby high ground,” Yahaya said. Three motorcycles abandoned by the fleeing bandits were seized.
