Troops under the auspices of Operation Thunder Strike on Monday night killed two bandits along the Sabon Iche-Kagarko Road, Kagarko local government area.

According to the operational feedback to the Kaduna State Government,  the troops laid an ambush along the route following credible intelligence on the bandits’ movement in the area.
