Five terrorists killed by Nigerian soldiers in Kaduna

The Nigerian Army has been able to kill five terrorists in Kwanan Bataro, Giwa local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The Military took out the hoodlums during a clearance patrol exercise in the area.

A statement by the state commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, confirmed the attack.

“According to the operational feedback, the troops who were conducting clearance patrols in Giwa LGA received credible intelligence of terrorists’ movement towards Fatika town,” Mr Aruwan said.

“The troops then mobilised to Marke and Ruheya in response.

“The outlaws were sighted and attempted to escape the advancing forces. The troops however cut off their escape route at Kwanan Bataro, and engaged them in a firefight, during which five of the terrorists were neutralized. The troops returned to base after clearing the area.”

On his part, Mr. Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna commended the troops for the job well done.
