The Nigeria Police Force said it has repelled terrorists’ attacks in two villages in Matazu Local Government Area of Katsina State and rescued 15 kidnapped women.
These feats were achieved by policemen attached to the Nasarawa State Police Command. The command did not only rescue 15 kidnapped women but also rescued six children and recovered 20 rustled cows.
The Katsina State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Gambo Isah, said that on the 28th of October, 2022, at about 4:30 am, a distress call was received that terrorists in their numbers, on motorbikes, shooting sporadically with AK 47 rifles, attacked Buraji and Sabon Sara villages.
During the attacks, they kidnapped 15 women, six children and rustled 20 cows.
Isah said: “On receipt of the information, Area Commander, Dutsinma, as Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mohammad Makama, led a team of police tactical units, blocked their exits route at Gandun Sarki village and engaged them in a fierce gun duel.
The terrorists were alleged to have fled in the face of police’s superior firepower and successfully rescued all the 21 kidnapped victims and recovered 20 rustled cows. Many terrorists were killed and some escaped the scene with gunshot wounds. Tactical teams are still combing the area with a view of recovering their dead bodies and or arresting the injured terrorists. The investigation is ongoing.”BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
