Troops of the Nigerian Army, in collaboration with Zamfara State Community Protection Guards on Monday 11 June 2024, eliminated 3 terrorists and recovered several rustled sheep in multiple operations in Zamfara State.

A statement from the Army Headquarters says in Rukudawa Village, located in Zurmi Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, troops launched an offensive operation targeting the hideout of notorious terrorist kingpin Gwaska Dan Karami.

In the encounter, troops eliminated two terrorists and uncovered a terrorists’ warehouse stocked with looted food supplies. The warehouse has been destroyed in situ.

In another operation in the Mayanchi general area of the Maru Local Government Area, troops on fighting patrol intercepted and engaged marauding terrorists who had rustled a flock of sheep.

The troops neutralised one terrorist in the overwhelming firefight compelling the rest of the terrorists to flee abandoning one AK-47 rifle, a magazine with three rounds of 7.62 x 39 mm ammunition, two motorcycles, and 410 rustled sheep; which have been recovered by the troops.

Other items recovered include a pair of military camouflage and a Mobile Police uniform. The rescued sheep have been handed over to the Committee on Recovery of Rustled Animals in Gusau.

Troops also intercepted terrorists on a mission to carry out their nefarious activities along Kairu road in Gummi Local Government Area and recovered one AK-47 rifle from the terrorists, after thwarting the mission.
