Bandits On A Run As Over 100 Soldiers Stormed Kaduna Forest

Bandits were said to have fled from their hideouts around Kagarko, Iche, Taka-Lafiya Gidan Makeri and Janjala communities in Kaduna State after over 100 troops stormed the forest in Kagarko LGA.

City & Crime had reported that many rural communities in Kagarko Chiefdom had been under siege by bandits who abducted residents and farmers a few months ago.

But the situation was said to have been contained after troops raided their hideouts and some rural communities and arrested some suspected informants.

A traditional title holder in Kagarko, Suleiman Aliyu, while speaking with our reporter through telephone on Wednesday, said the troops, who drove into Kagarko town at about 11 am on Wednesday in Hilux vans, trucks and motorcycles, moved straight to Iche, Taka-Lafiya, Gidan Makeri and Janjala villages around the forest to hunt down the bandits.

He said the troops moved in after they got intelligence information that some fleeing bandits from the far north were relocating to form a camp around some villages in the area.
