Police in Kaduna have killed two bandits and recovered two AK47 rifles in the Birnin Gwari axis of Kaduna state.
In a statement signed by the Kaduna State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer ASP Mohammed Jalinge, the operation followed a piece of distress information received by the command that some armed bandits in large numbers had attacked Kimdi village of Birnin Gwari LGA to unleash mayhem and kidnap people.
According to the statement, the command immediately dispatched a nearby team of crack Operatives to the location to repel the bandits and an exchange of fire ensued where two of the bandits were killed and two AK47 assault rifles recovered.
The command said it is not unmindful of the security challenges, particularly around the Birnin Gwari axis but will work with the state government and other security agencies to protect lives and property in the state.
