Soldiers Neutralise Three Terrorists In Kaduna

Soldiers of the Nigerian Army have killed three terrorists in transit to repair their motorcycles around  Kidandan Village, Giwa Local Government of Kaduna State.

The troops were said to have laid an ambush for the terrorists following an intelligence report.

This, it was gathered, resulted in a fierce gun battle between the troops and the terrorists.

According to a post by the Nigerian Army on its X handle on Saturday, the troops eliminated three terrorists and recovered several weapons.

The post read, “In a recent successful counter-terrorism operation, Nigerian Army troops have neutralised a group of terrorists in an ambush operation in Kaduna State. Acting on credible intelligence, the troops targeted the terrorist group, known for using motorbikes to carry out nefarious activities in the region.

“During the operation on Friday,  April 4, 2024, around  Kidandan Village, Giwa Local Government of Kaduna State, the troops engaged the terrorists in a gun battle, neutralising three of them. The terrorist group was in transit to repair their motorbikes, which they used as mobility when unleashing their acts of terror on the populace in Kaduna State and across the Northwest region.

“The operation also led to the recovery of one AK-47 rifle, one stock AK-47 rifle, four motorbikes, and one Motorola radio.”

The Army urged citizens to support security agencies to tackle the scourge of insecurity ravaging many parts of the country.

“The Nigerian Army remains committed to the ongoing counter-terrorism, counter-insurgency operations to ensure the safety and security of the populace.

“We therefore enjoin members of the public to continue to support Nigerian Army troops and other security operatives as they continue to strive to mitigate security challenges in the country,” the post added.
