Troops eliminate terrorist in Kaduna


Troops of the Nigerian Army deployed for special patrols during the sallah festive period in Kaduna State have eliminated a terrorist in Giwa Local Government Area of the state.

In a statement on its X handle, on Sunday, the Nigerian Army said the terrorist was identified as a cohort of a notorious terrorist commander known as Buharin Yadi, who was eliminated by troops in a recent encounter.

According to the statement: “The terrorist met his Waterloo when troops projecting a fighting patrol to Kidandan, a village in the Giwa LGA, spotted him speeding off on a motorbike, in an attempt to evade the approaching patrol.”

The statement further disclosed that the vigilant troops swiftly pursued the terrorist, causing him to abandon his motorbike and flee into a nearby settlement.

“The troops continued to trail the fleeing terrorist until they successfully caught up and neutralised him while frantically trying to escape into the bush at the outskirts of the community. Upon searching the area, the troops recovered the abandoned motorbike, two bags containing corn flour, and a mobile phone from the neutralised terrorist.

“Further verification by operatives from the intelligence community confirmed the identity of the terrorist, as one Daushe, a known cohort of Buharin Yadi, who had been recently neutralised by troops in the same area. The swift and coordinated efforts of the security forces have once again prevented a potential threat to the community.

“Currently, the troops are maintaining a strong presence in the area to ensure a smooth and trouble-free Sallah celebration in Giwa Local Government Area,” the statement added.
