2 More Bandit Commanders Gun Down In “Deadly” Battle With Soldiers

Two wanted armed bandit commanders, whose names were given as Baldo and Baban Yara, together with scores of their foot soldiers, have been gunned down by Nigerian soldiers in what has been described as “deadly battle.”
The warlords were said to be behind the coordination of movement and exchange of kidnapped victims within camps in the Zamfara/Katsina axis.
A defence intelligence source confirmed that the terrorists were killed yesterday, February 25, along the Zamfara/Katsina axis.
“Our troops engaged the terrorists at Aliero West axis and succeeded in killing the two bandit kingpins and 28 of their foot soldiers.
“Lately, our troops have intensified their aggressive operation in the North West and are pounding terrorists heavily.
“We want to rid the region of criminal elements so that farmers can carry out their agricultural activities without delay.”
A source hinted that the operation was swift as no terrorists sighted were spared by the soldiers.
“The military worked on the intelligence in ambushing and eliminating the warlords and their followers mostly riding on motorcycles.
“If this operation is sustained, our farmers will surely return to the farms while, hopefully, we will have a peaceful Ramadan period of fasting, which is just around the corner.”
