Bandit in military uniform shot dead in Kaduna

The Police have gunned down a bandit and recovered an AK49 assault rifle, a locally fabricated long-range revolver with its twelve (12) polymer cased cartridges, and one operational motorcycle in Kaduna.

The incident happened in the early hours of Thursday when security operatives received a distress call that some bandits were sighted along Galadimawa Kidandan road in Giwa LGA of Kaduna State.

In a statement, the Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Mohammed Jalige, said the bandits’ movement drew suspicion.

“The Operatives engaged the hoodlums with clinical precision and succeeded in countering the bandits’ mission as they were compelled to retreat into the forest with some sustaining bullet injuries while one other was gunned down, his AK49 assault rifle and operational motorcycle recovered,” he said.

The Commissioner of Police Kaduna Command applauded the character and commitment of the Officers aimed at the safety and security of the State.

He further tasked them to sustain the recent gains since victory is near where criminality will be a thing of the past.
