Troops of Operation Forest Sanity, Thursday, killed two suspected insurgents terrorising parts of Birnin Gwari area of Kaduna State.
Our correspondent gathered that the onslaught is part of the surveillance of security agencies to quell the increasing cases of banditry in some parts of the state.
Thursday’s operations were carried out during a patrol along the Birnin Gwari-Doka-Sabon Layi-Kuriga-Maganda-Farin Ruwa road.
Mr Samuel Aruwan, the state commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, told our correspondent that, “The troops made contact with the bandits at Farin Ruwa. Two bandits were neutralized in the encounter, as the criminal elements were forced to withdraw under the troops’ superior firepower.
“The Kaduna State government received the development with satisfaction, and commended the troops for another successful round of operations.
“Clearance and fighting patrols continue in the general area.”
