No fewer than eight bandits were on Saturday killed by security operatives in Sabongari village of Wase LGA of Plateau State.

The incident occurred during a joint operation with troops of Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), the multi-security taskforce maintaining peace in the state, and vigilantes to flush out the bandit from the Wase general area.

The latest incident, however, is coming less than two weeks after 16 bandits were killed in Bangalala community of the said LGA.

Major Ishaku Takwa, the spokesman of the operation who confirmed the incident, told Daily Trust that “eight bandits were killed during the operation in the area.”

He said the operation began on Saturday and is continuing today (Sunday).

Abdullahi Usman, a resident of Wase who also confirmed the incident, told Daily Trust that during the clash, two villages – Zurak and Yaddi Lawan – which were seized and served as bases for the bandits were burnt but retaken by the security team.

He said, “Some of the bandits were killed while those that fled were chased by the security operatives.

“It was a joint operation of soldiers and vigilantes and was successful. I believe it will continue today (Sunday)”.
