Nigerian troops deployed under Operation Forest Sanity killed at least two terrorists during clearance operations in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The Kaduna State’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said in a statement that the troops prevailed over the terrorists during a firefight along the Kaboresha-Rijana Forest-Kuzo-Kujeni-Gwanto-Kachia axis.
“The troops set up an ambush position along the Gwanto-Kwasau Road, and thus engaged bandits approaching the location on motorcycles. The troops killed two bandits and recovered three motorcycles.
“The onslaught against bandits is in progress and the government appeals to the general public to continue to volunteer useful information,” Aruwan said.
Chikun Local Government Area is one of the most terrorized towns in Kaduna State.
