In a recent operation in Kebbi State, troops, alongside the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and local vigilantes, successfully rescued four kidnapped victims. The joint raid targeted a terrorists’ camp in Sabon Gari Village, Shanga Local Government Area. During the operation, one terrorist was neutralized, and the four victims, all males, were safely extricated.
Captain Yahaya Ibrahim, Acting Assistant Director of Army Public Relations 1 Brigade Gusau, reported that the security forces seized three AK-47 rifles, three magazines, 142 rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition, and two pairs of camouflage uniforms from the terrorists’ hideout. The successful mission highlights the effectiveness of collaborative efforts in combating criminal activities in the region.
“All the rescued victims who are 4 males have since been reunited with their families, while troops continued to trail the wounded and fleeing terrorists,” stated Captain Yahaya Ibrahim.
The commitment of the security forces extends beyond the successful rescue, as they persist in pursuing the wounded and fleeing terrorists, ensuring accountability for their actions. This operation not only demonstrates the resolve of the security forces but also brings a sense of relief to the affected community and reinforces their confidence in the authorities.
The collaborative nature of the operation, involving multiple security agencies and local vigilantes, underscores the importance of coordinated efforts in addressing security challenges. The successful rescue and the dismantling of the terrorists’ camp contribute significantly to restoring peace and security in the region.
As the security forces maintain their pursuit of criminal elements, the people of Kebbi State can find reassurance in the decisive action taken to safeguard the community. The operation serves as a testament to the collective determination to eliminate threats and maintain a secure environment for residents.
