Female Ammunitions Supplier To Bandits Arrested In Kaduna State By Nigeria Police – 4 Suspected Terrorists Killed
The spokesperson of the Kaduna State Nigerian Police Command, DSP Mohammed Jalige, has disclosed that the Special Tactical Squad Force Headquarters, Abuja (STS), and operatives of the Operation Yaki, Kaduna State Command killed four terrorists along the Saminaka-Jos highway recently.
Speaking to the media on June 16, 2022, DSP Mohammed said that the bandits were intercepted in a Volkswagen Sharon car on June 15, 2022.
“The operatives, with tactical precision were able to terminally injure four suspects. The injured suspects were evacuated to Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital Kaduna, where they were pronounced dead by a medical doctor,” DSP Mohammed said.
He also revealed that a female accomplice was also apprehended during the operation. She allegedly confessed that she is a major supplier of ammunition and weapons to bandits in Kaduna State.
DSP Mohammed disclosed that some members of the gang were shot and wounded during the gun battle with the security operatives. However, some of the bandits escaped into the surrounding forest.
“One Ak-49 rifle loaded with six rounds of live ammunition, one Ak-47 rifle, one empty magazine, 134 rounds of different calibers of live ammunition, and an operational motor vehicle were also recovered during the operation.
There is an ongoing investigation to get the identities of the gang members and unravel their source of getting arms,” DSP Mohammed said.
If there is a level of consistency in the backing that the police receive, they may be able to do a lot more than they’re presently achieving with their limited resources.
Hopefully, this will not be a one-off thing, and there may be some form of progress in the security situation in Nigeria.
