The military Joint Task Force North-West Operation Hadarin Daji said, on Wednesday, that it neutralised scores of bandits and rescued eight kidnapped victims in Zamfara State.

The Information Officer of Operation Hadarin Daji, Lt. Col. Suleiman Omale, stated this in a statement on Wednesday in Gusau.

Omale said, “On the 28th February 2024, the troops engaged the terrorists with a heavy gun duel which due to superior fighting power the bad elements fled in disarray and abandoned their captors.

“The gallant troops neutralised scores of the terrorists, destroyed the terrorists’ enclaves and dominated the area with aggressive and confidence-building patrol within the general area.”

He said all the rescued victims were handed over to the appropriate authorities to reunite them with their respective families.

The Commander of the Joint Task Force,  Maj. Gen. Godwin Mutkut, who is also the General Officer Commanding 8 Division Nigerian Army, commended the efforts of the troops for their continued doggedness and resilience in an effort to restore normalcy in the North-West.
