In another development, troops have rescued 13 kidnapped persons from bandits in Gwagwada, Chikun local government area.
The 13 citizens, originally from Dutse, went to work at a farm called Tanadi Farm, which is located around Bakin Kasuwa in Gwagwada general area of Chikun LGA and they were attacked by the armed bandits in the process.
According to a statement issued by the commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs said troops on receiving credible intelligence of the abduction trailed the bandits to a forest near Bana village and there engaged them in a gun duel.

“The bandits also burnt a church and looted some houses in the area.
“Receiving the report, Governor Nasir El-Rufai thanked the troops and commended them warmly for the successful rescue operation.
“He also commiserated with the families of the deceased volunteers and prayed for the repose of their souls.
“The Governor also extended his sympathy to the leadership and members of the razed church over the unfortunate attack, and directed the State Emergency Management Agency to conduct an immediate assessment of the damage.”
