Troops of operation Hadarin Daji have launched offensive attacks on various hideouts and camps of suspected bandits located in four local government areas of Zamfara and Katsina States.

The troops during the operation, also killed over one hundred bandits, destroyed their camps and recovered assorted dangerous weapons and rescued ten kidnapped victims.

A statement by the acting Force information officer of Operation Hadarin Daji, Captain Ayobami Oni-Orisan, says the kinetic operation was carried out in Anka, Maru, and Bukkuyum in Zamfara while another operation was executed in Jubia in Katsina state following the recent upsurge in activities of unrepentant bandits in both states who have refused to key into the ongoing Peace Initiatives of the Zamfara state government.

According to the statement, between December the 16th 2019 to 9 January 2020, the troops of Operation Haradin Daji, comprising personnel of the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Airforce, Nigeria Police, Department of State Services and other security agencies, conducted several clearance operations to smoke out and neutralize the recalcitrant bandits from their enclaves.
