A confirmation statement has been made by the Kaduna state police Command’s Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Mohammed Jalige on the abortion of some bandits mission along Abuja Express way.
According to DSP Jalige, he said: “The dividends of the renewed vigor and purposeful synergy between the Police and the military in Kaduna State came to the fore yet again on Monday 13th June 2022 at about 0255hrs when the combined team of Police Operation Puff Adder and that of the Nigerian army Operation Thunder Strike while on routine patrol along Kaduna–Abuja highway at Sabon Sara had an encounter with armed bandits’ who were on their nefarious mission along the busy highway.
He also added that, “The marauding armed bandits were intercepted at the above mentioned point where exchange of fire ensued as a result of which the friendly forces succeeded in truncating the bandits mission forcing them to retreat into the forest as one bandit was neutralised.”
A combined squad of the Nigerian Army and Police foiled the mission of some bandits along the Kaduna-Abuja expressway on Monday, killing one and recovering several ammunitions.
The team were able to neutralize one and recovered one AK-47 rifle and nine of their operational motorcycles.
A lot of operation has been carried out by bandits along that route and the victims, some are been released while the other others still stay captives.
