Troops Neutralize Terrorist In Katsina, Rescue Kidnap Victims, Recover Arms




The successful operation led to the seizure of one AK-47 rifle, two rounds of 7.62 mm (Special) ammunition and a motorcycle. The troops also recovered a bag containing four empty magazines and a power bank, potentially used for communication and explosive devices.

In a separate incident, troops responded to a distress call on kidnapping activities along the Maraban-Jema’a road in Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State. On sighting the troops, the kidnappers fled, abandoning a Peugeot 307 vehicle and two kidnap victims.

The two kidnap victims, Mr Abdul Bello, who is the owner of the abandoned vehicle and Miss Sekyen Melody Yapshak have been promptly evacuated for medical attention.

These operations underscore the commitment of the Nigerian Army to collaborate with other security agencies to combat kidnapping and violent extremism in the region. The swift response and successful outcomes of these engagements demonstrate the effectiveness of interagency cooperation in addressing security challenges in the country.
