Troops Clear Camp Of Notorious Terrorist Lawal Kwalba In Kaduna forest
One motorcycle and two mobile phones were recovered as the bandits took to their heels before the troops’ arrival.
Troops of Operation Forest Sanity involved in the ongoing military operation in Kaduna state have destroyed a camp belonging to a notorious bandit, Lawal Kwalba located inside a forest at Rafin Dawa in Chikun local government area of the state.
According to a statement by the Kaduna State commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, the troops of Operation Forest Sanity conducted a patrol to the location following actionable intelligence.
“The troops after clearing the camp recovered some batteries and 27 bags of fertilizer. These materials indicate likely plans to manufacture Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), considering the bandits’ close alliance with terrorists.
Furthermore, one motorcycle and two mobile phones were recovered as the bandits took to their heels before the troops’ arrival.
“The troops extended the search a short distance from the camp, and made some arrests. Investigations are ongoing on the intercepted suspects.
“The Kaduna State Government received the report with satisfaction, and praised the sustained efforts by officers and men carrying out the operations,” Mr Aruwan added.
