KADUNA: Troops neutralise several bandits in Giwa

Troops of the Nigerian Army have neutralized several bandits in a fresh coordinated attack in Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The coordinated ground and air strikes by troops of Operation Whirl Punch successfully neutralized several bandits including some of their leaders at an identified meeting point near Bula community within Yadi Forest in Giwa local government area.

According to operational feedback to the Kaduna State Government released by the state Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, the strike was based on credible intelligence which followed the recent elimination of some bandit kingpins along the Kaduna-Katsina border areas.

Aruwan said that the intelligence report had earlier revealed that bandits were to converge at the area for a meeting on a deadly mission within the Yadi Forest general area before they were dislodged by troops of Operation Whirl Punch.
