Combined police, military engage terrorists in gun duel on Kaduna-Abuja highway

A combined team of Police and military operatives foiled a mission by bandits along the Kaduna-Abuja highway yesterday.

According to the State’s Police Command spokesman, DSP Mohammed Jalige, who confirmed the incident in an issued statement in Kaduna, the team killed one of the bandits and recovered one AK-47 rifle as well as 9 of their operational motorcycles.

He stated that the feat was another indication of successful and purposeful synergy between the Police team of ‘Operation Puff Adder’ and the military in the State.

The Police urged residents in the area to report people with suspected gunshot wounds to security agencies as, according to the Force, “injured criminal elements will be hibernating around nearby communities to access healthcare services”.
