“The operation followed distress information received on the same date at about 1600hrs that some armed bandits in large numbers had attacked Kimdi village of Birnin Gwari LGA in their ignoble mission of kidnapping.

“The Command immediately dispatched a nearby team of crack Operatives to the location to repel the attackers and an exchange of fire ensued where two of the bandits were neutralised and two AK47 assault rifles recovered.

“The Command is not unmindful of the security challenges particularly around Birnin Gwari axis thus, the Command alongside the State government and other security agencies are working assiduously to ensure that the sanctity of human lives is adequately protected at all times.”
