Police say one bandit killed in Kaduna

The police command in Kaduna says its operatives killed a bandit and seized one AK-47 rifle with two rounds of live 7.62x39mm ammunition.

The command’s spokesman, DSP Mohammed Jalige, confirmed the development in a statement on Monday.

The statement said on March 13, operatives of the command attached to Operation WHIRL Punch (OPSWP) acted on a received credible intelligence indicating that bandits on a nefarious mission had blocked the Galadimawa-Tumburku road of Giwa local government area.

The police stated that its operatives, led by DPO Kidandan, swiftly moved to the scene, engaged the bandits in a gun duel and countered their heinous raid, which forced them to scamper in disarray into a nearby bush with possible varying gunshot wounds.

The statement said police commissioner Yekini Ayoku commended the effort of the operatives.

According to the statement, the police commissioner assured members of the public that the command would continue to be resilient in ensuring that criminal elements are denied the space to launch attacks.
