Gov. Dikko Radda of Katsina State, in a joint operation with a combined team of security operatives, has foiled an attack on the Zakka community in Safana Local Government Area of the state.

According to a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Kaula Mohammed, the team also rescued during the encounter a 33-year-old man abducted by bandits.

Kaula-Mohammed said Gov. Radda was in Safana to inaugurate an empowerment programme sponsored by the Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Alhaji Abduljalal Runka, when the operatives received distress calls that terrorists planned to attack Zakka village.

He revealed that after receiving the intelligence report, the governor immediately called off the programme.

“Gov. Radda and some few members of his entourage then joined the combined team of security personnel comprising officers of the Nigeria Police, Air Component of Operation Hadarin Daji, ground troops of the Army, and Community Security Watch Corps.

They engaged the terrorists at Zakka forest before the criminals advanced to the hills.

“A 33-year-old man was bravely rescued by the gallant troops after a heavy gun battle with the terrorists which lasted almost 30 minutes.

“However, the terrorists were fortunate to escape without suffering casualty after their callous mission was thwarted,” he said.

After repelling the attack, the governor directed that the rescued victim, who was shot in the leg by the terrorists, be taken to hospital for urgent treatment. (NAN)
