The Kaduna State government on Friday night said ground troops of the Operation Thunder Strike (OPTS) had foiled an attempted kidnap by armed bandits on citizens plying the Kaduna-Abuja road.
The state government said it received operational feedback that the armed bandits attempted to operate at the Kasarami axis of the road situated in Chikun Local Government Area at about 7:38pm.
The state’s Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan stated that the troops who were on aggressive patrols engaged the armed bandits who dispersed in disarray while the troops pursued them off the road.
While apologizing to motorists and other road users who suffered delays as a result of the security response, Aruwan stated that the inconveniences were an unintended consequence of efforts to protect lives and property.
“As at the time of this security update, traffic is flowing on both lanes of the highway, and the troops are sustaining aggressive fighting patrols to deny the criminals freedom of action,” he stated. (Daily Trust)
