Kaduna State Govt confirms killing of six insurgents

The Kaduna State Government has confirmed that troops of 1 Division of the Nigerian Army and Operation Whirl Punch have neutralised six insurgents and arrested three suspects during special operations in Giwa LGA.

Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna State’s Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, who made this known in a statement on Thursday, said the news was contained in an operational feedback to the Kaduna State Government by the military.

He said the feat was achieved following credible intelligence information about terrorist activities in the general area, just as troops conducted a special fighting patrol in the Galadimawa general area in Giwa LGA.

The troops set up an initial position at Sabon Sara village, where it was discovered that insurgents had abandoned a herd of rustled cattle as they hastily escaped from the location.

According to him, the troops recovered the cattle and handed them over to locals before continuing the advance, adding that the troops then sighted insurgents at the Market Square of Galadimawa.

“A swift exchange of fire resulted in six insurgents being neutralised by the troops. A further search of the market area led to the arrest by the troops of three suspected collaborators and informants believed to have been offering logistic assistance to the criminal elements. Two motorcycles and four mobile phones were also recovered,” the statement disclosed.

While the troops continue special operations in the general area and other locations of interest, the Government of Kaduna State has appealed to locals in frontline communities to continue to volunteer timely intelligence to the nearest security formations

The state government warned: “Informants who provide information to terrorists on the movements of security forces and citizens are warned to desist from these actions, as they are being trailed for diligent prosecution.”
