Troops of Operation Hadarin Daji, OPHD, have recorded success as they neutralised scores of bandits and cleared some of their hideouts in Zamfara State.

This was disclosed by Brigadier General Sani Ahmed, the Commanding Officer of 1 Brigade, Nigeria Army, Gusau, during the West African Social Activities, WASA, held on the garrison grounds in Gusau.

Brig. Gen. Ahmed asserted that military’s collaboration with other security operatives prevented bandits from entering the state.

Ahmed, represented by Colonel J. Umaru, stated that the brigade’s Operation Hadarin Daji, which has a robust synergy with other sister agencies, had conducted a serious operation in the identified bandits enclaves in Sunke, Gando, Munhaye and Kuyanbana forests.

He further noted that other identified forests and locations under 1 Brigade’s area of responsibility have been raided by troops, reducing the nefarious activities of the bandits in the axis.

“The 1 Brigade has supported and contributed immensely towards the recruitment and training of the over 4,000 state government-initiated Community Protection Guard personnel (CPG) who are now combat-ready to assist troops and other security agencies in fighting banditry in the state.

“Also 1 Brigade, among other civil-military cooperation activities, offered free medical outreach across some communities in Zamfara State and the distribution of medical items, rehabilitation of accident and emergency wards of some general hospitals in Gusau.”
