According to the Spokesman of the Command, Mohammed Jalige, the bandits dressed in military uniforms and armed with sophisticated weapons invaded Gabari community, Samaru area of Sabon Gari, and started shooting sporadically, and in the process whisked four persons away into the forest.
On getting the information, the command immediately mobilised operational assets alongside men of Operation Puff Adder II and local vigilantes; who courageously laid ambush on the bandits’ expected route and successfully rescued two people that were kidnapped by the bandits.
A similar strategy was adopted at Gwada village where the two other victims were rescued by the security operatives with the assistance of vigilantes, who intercepted and engaged the bandits in a gun duel.
