Nigerian troops hit the camp of a notorious bandit, Lawal Kwalba, in Rafin Dawa in the Dende general area of Chikun local government, Kaduna on Thursday.
The troops of Operation Forest Sanity stormed the bandit’s camp following actionable intelligence.
Some batteries and 27 bags of fertilizer were recovered during the operation.
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.
However, the Kaduna State Government received the report with satisfaction and praised the sustained efforts by officers and men carrying out the operations.
