The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that troops had earlier recovered 157 animals from the bandits on Sept. 25, after raiding their camp at Kahiru forest in the Bakura Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

Usman said that troops on “Operation Sharan Daji’’, ambushed and engaged the bandits in a fierce battle at Kuran Mota in the Anka Local Government Area of the state, following a tip-off.

He said that the weapons recovered included one AK-47 rifle, one rifle magazine, 1,253 rounds of 7.62mm and one motorcycle.
