Two bandits who have been terrorizing residents of Igabi
Local Government Area of Kaduna State have been killed by
security operatives deployed to the area.
The killing of the two bandits comes on the heels of the killing
of several people in Kerawa and Sabon Birnin villages in Igabi
and Zaria local government areas by the bandits.
Confirming the incident on Tuesday in Kaduna, the
Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel
Aruwan, said the bandits were neutralized around the

According to him, troops intercepted the gunmen while they
were retreating to the Malul forest and recovered an AK-47
rifle from them.
Aruwan said the bandits attacked Kudu da Gari settlement in
Sabon Birni, Igabi LGA and killed seven residents while four
others were left critically injured.
