Combined troops of Operation Thunder Strike, Operation Whirl Punch and 312 Artillery Regiment have destroyed two bandits camps in Kaduna State, spokesman of Army 1 Division, Col. Ezindu Idimah, has said.
Idamah said the operation was carried out from about 2 am to 4 am on Sunday following credible information from well-meaning Nigerians.
“The offensive action was aimed at destroying remnants of bandits and their camps at Kankomi, close to Tantu and Daban Goje Mountains in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State,” Idamah told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna.
“During the operation, the troops destroyed the two camps used by the bandits to perpetuate their nefarious activities.
“One of the bandits was neutralised while one AK47 rifle, 3 motorcycles, 2 mobile phones, and the sum of N5,000 were recovered.”
Idimah said, “this is the fourth time within the last 10 days that the troop’s aggressive action had neutralised bandits and led to the recovery of arms and rescue of victims.”
