The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations. Maj. Gen. John Enenche, says the Armed Forces were intensifying operations to track down and arrest those collaborating with bandits in parts of the country.
Enenche said that the military was devising and deploying new strategies daily, to address insecurity, noting that once it was able to crack down on the collaborators, banditry would be curbed.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Thursday during his weekly briefing, Enenche also disclosed that a number of collaborators had been arrested at different locations by troops, adding that three bandits’ accomplices were arrested in the North- West between November 12 and 18, 2020.
He noted that the bandits also suffered heavy casualties as several of them were killed while many others escaped with varying degrees of gunshot wounds.
