Birnin-Gwari: Police Operatives In Kaduna Kill 2 Bandits, Several Injured 

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force, Kaduna State Command, have killed two bandits with several others sustaining varying degrees of bullet injuries at Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of the state.

The operatives also recovered two AK47 assault rifles on May 30, 2022 according to the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Muhammed Jalige in a statement obtained by Stonix News on Thursday.

“The operation followed a distress information received on the same date at about 1600hrs that some armed bandits in large numbers had attacked Kimdi village of Birnin Gwari LGA in their ignoble mission of kidnapping.

“The Command immediately dispatched a nearby team of crack operatives to the location to repel the attackers and an exchange of fire ensued where two of the bandits were neutralised and two AK47 assault rifles recovered.

“The Command is not unmindful of the security challenges particularly around Birnin Gwari axis thus, the Command alongside the state government and other security agencies are working assiduously to ensure that the sanctity of human lives are adequately protected at all times.

“The recent successes recorded by the Command and other sister agencies attest to the fact that no effort is spared in prosecuting the war against these criminal elements,” the statement noted.

ASP Jalige quoted the Commissioner of Police, Yekini Ayoku, as “calling on all stakeholders and communities concerned to exercise restraint in the way and manner the situation is communicated to the public to avoid aggravating fears in the mind of the people.

“He reiterate that security is undoubtedly everybody’s business but unguarded communication has the potential to mar the ongoing concerted effort being made to attenuate the negative impact of these challenges to enable farmers make maximum use of this farming season to boost the economy of the state.”
