According to the operational feedback, the troops set an ambush at a suspected terrorist rallying point on the route.

The Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who confirmed this in a statement, said weapons were recovered from the bandits.

He said the troops vigorously engaged the criminals and they (criminals) returned fire but were overpowered by the troops after a brief firefight. Three terrorists were neutralised in the exchange.

He added that the items that were recovered were three AK47 rifles, three AK47 magazines, two motorcycles, and two mobile phones.

Aruwan said Governor Nasir El-Rufai expressed satisfaction with the operational feedback and commended the troops for their swift and decisive action in engaging the terrorists and encouraged them to keep up the tempo against criminal elements in the state.

It can be recalled that Chikun LGA recently witnessed a series of attacks and abductions by bandits, forcing many people to abandon their houses and villages.
