Troops gun down associate of late bandit leader, Buharin Yadi in Kaduna

Troops of Sector 6, Operation Whirl Punch, have neutralized a bandit confirmed to be an associate of recently eliminated Buharin Yadi, during a special fighting patrol in Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Overseeing Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State, Samuel Aruwan, who disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, June 16, 2024, said the troops were pulled to Sabon Layi from various locations in Giwa LGA for commencement of the special patrol.
“The troops then projected their force from there to Kidandan. On approaching the village, a bandit was sighted fleeing on a motorcycle,” the statement read.
“The troops gave chase, and the terrorist was duly neutralized in the engagement which followed around the outskirts of the community.
“Verification of his identity revealed the bandit to be one Daushe, an associate of the recently neutralized kingpin Buharin Yadi.
“It would be recalled that the infamous bandit leader Buhari Alhaji Halidu (known as Buharin Yadi) was eliminated along with dozens of his associates by security forces in Giwa LGA just days before.
“Receiving the feedback, the Governor of Kaduna State Senator Uba Sani expressed gratitude to the troops for their relentless hard work, and congratulated the General Officer Commanding, 1 Division Nigerian Army, Major General MLD Saraso, for the latest breakthrough.

“The Governor encouraged the troops to keep up the tempo towards the complete degradation of terrorist elements in the general area.”
