The Nigerian Army successfully repelled an early morning bandit attack on their base in the Chikun LGA on Sunday, according to the Kaduna State government.

The gun battle killed one of the dozens of assailants, but the fleeing bandits killed three locals as they fled, according to Samuel Aruwan, the state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs.

“Troops of the Nigerian Army repelled an attack by dozens of bandits in the early hours of Sunday at Kankomi, Chikun LGA, and subsequently neutralised one of the attackers, while others escaped with gunshot wounds,” the commissioner said in a statement issued in Kaduna on Sunday.
