The Nigerian Army conducted a series of coordinated operations and raided terrorist camps in Katsina and Zamfara States, killing a large number of terrorists.

The Nigerian Army stated on its official ‘X’ feed on Monday that the operations took place on March 29 and March 30.

According to the army, on March 29, troops invaded the hideout of Hassan Yantagwaye, a known terrorist leader, in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara.

It went on to say that Yantagwaye and his organisation were responsible for kidnappings and acts of terrorism in parts of North West Nigeria.

The army said:

“During the operation, troops overpowered the terrorists in an ensuing gun battle, neutralising three of them and recovering a large cache of arms and ammunition and also destroying the terrorists’ camps.

“In Katsina State, the gallant troops on March 30, engaged in a fierce gun battle with terrorists in Shawu Kuka, Shinda, Tafki, Gidan Surajo, and Citakushi in Kabai I and Kabai II within Faskari Local Government Area.

“The troops neutralised eight terrorists and recovered three locally fabricated guns, military uniforms and a large quantity of stolen grains.”

The army also said that on March 29, its forces intercepted 441 wraps of a material thought to be Cannabis Sativa in Molegede village, Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun.

It added that the vigilant forces discovered the illicit chemicals being transported in a Mazda Saloon car after the smugglers fled, abandoning the vehicle when they saw the troops.
