FLASH| Troops Kill 18 Armed Cattle Rustlers (PICTURES)

by on May 6, 2016
Troops of 223 Battalion, 1 Brigade Nigerian Army have averted another attack on Dansadau town by suspected cattle rustlers and armed bandits yesterday Wednesday 4th May 2016. The troops who were on patrol were alerted by well meaning individuals on seeing the bandits.

The patrol team laid an ambush for the suspected cattle rustlers and armed bandits who came in large numbers on motorcycles fully armed. It was gathered that they were enroute Ruwan Tofa and Babban Doka Villages in Dansadau District of Maru Local Government Area, Zamfara State to wreck havoc on the hapless innocents of those communities.

The troops killed 18 and wounded several armed bandits. They also recovered 11 AK-47 rifles, 1 G3 rifles, 1 locally made pistol, 11 magazines of AK-47 rifle, a magazine of G3 rifle and 161 rounds of 7.62mm (Special) ammunitions. The troops went further and destroyed the bandits’ camp at Babban Doka general area.

They are also combing the area for the remnants of the bandits and all those that escaped with gunshot wounds in the general area. We would like to appeal to the public to continue to assist with information on cattle rustlers, armed bandits and other criminal elements in their areas.
Thank you for your usual cooperation.

      Nigeria will survive. Successive governments have empowered so many rogues who stole brazenly and had enough to procure arms that proliferated our society without check. There are powerful people fueling and sponsoring these wars, I suspect. See what politicians use hoodlums and cultists for in Niger delta especially in rivers state, to kill their own kinsmen. Why? ..monies meant to empower these guys positively were stolen and used to do so negatively and in order to keep them enslaved perpetually…one cld go on and on and the truth is we have a long way to go but I believe God to help this government and the military to get to the roots of these problems. Thank God for the victory over B/haram.
