The Police Tactical Operatives in collaboration with the other security agencies in Zamfara State have repelled a large number of armed bandits who invaded Shinkafi town in their hundreds with intent to attack the innocent people of the area.
The bandits who were from the camp of a notorious kingpin, “TURJI” were heavily engaged in a gun duel with the Joint security forces stationed in Shinkafi to safeguard the lives and property of the communities.
At the end of the gun battle that lasted for hours, one of the bandits was fatally injured, while others escaped with possible bullet wounds.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ayuba Elkanah directed the immediate deployment of more security operatives to complement the existing security arrangements, that will curtail any further attack by the bandits.
The Commissioner, however, commended the resilience of the operatives and charged them to sustain the tempo so that the state can be adequately protected from bandits.
Telecommunication networks are currently shut down in Zamfara State following the rising activities of bandits.
