Army Neutralises Five Bandits In Katsina – Spokesman

Late night firefight left 5 bandits, 1 army officer dead in Katsina 

Katsina, usually referred to as Katsina State to distinguish it from the city of Katsina, is a state in North West zone of Nigeria.

At least four armed bandits have been neutralised by the troops of Operation HADARIN DAJI while conducting clearance operations against armed bandits and other criminal elements in Katsina State, the army said in a statement on Saturday.

The troops engaged the bandits at Marina village in Safana LGA of Katsina State on March 4.

Other bandits escaped with various degrees of gunshot wounds as the army recovered arms and motorcycles.

According to the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Mohammed Yerima, the unconfirmed number of armed men with an unspecified number of rustled cattle were sighted and intercepted along Batsari-Runka road.

“However, in an attempt to escape from the troops onslaught, the bandits sporadically fired at troops direction but the gallant troops responded with superior firepower followed by a hot pursuit thereby forcing the bandits to withdraw in disarray,” the army said.

“During the encounter, four-armed bandits were neutralized while others escaped with various degrees of gunshot wounds.

“The troops also captured two AK-47 rifles and one motorcycle belonging to the bandits. Regrettably, one brave soldier paid the supreme sacrifice during the encounter.

“Troops have dominated general area and are trailing the escaping bandits.

“The gallant troops of Operation HADARIN DAJI have been commended for the successes achieved and their commitment so far. They are further urged not to rest on their oars until the North West zone is rid of all criminal activities.

“Additionally, the good people of the North West are once more assured of the troops’ commitment to safety of lives and properties within the zone. They are also encouraged to avail the troops with timely and credible Information that could assist in the success of their operations.”
