The Defence Headquarters says the troops of Operation Whirl Stroke and 177 Battalion on Wednesday killed two bandits in a raid on their hideout at Angwan Mada in Nasarawa State.

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

Enenche said the raid was conducted sequel to actionable technical and human intelligence on the location of the camp in the general area.

He said the operation also resulted in the recovery of 20 locally made rifles and other ammunition.

According to him, the troops adopted an aggressive posture and tactfully assaulted the hideout, taking the bandits by surprise.

“The gallant troops overwhelmed the bandits with effective fire and neutralised two of the criminals responsible for kidnappings and other crimes in the general area while others fled in disarray with fatal gunshot wounds.

“A follow-up exploitation of the camp and environs further resulted in the recovery of a total of 20 locally made rifles, 40 empty cases of 7.62mm special ammunition and 5 rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition.

“Troops thereafter destroyed the camp,” he said.

Enenche said the troops had dominated the area with aggressive patrols, adding that they were also on the trail of the fleeing bandits.

He urged members of the public to continue to provide credible information to the troops operating within their localities.
