Security forces have killed scores of terrorists during a clearance operation in Galbi, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
According to the state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan, Operation Forest Sanity, supported by assets of the Nigerian Air Force, initially ran into stiff resistance by the insurgents. But in the end, a major success was recorded in the ongoing operations against terrorists as the military forces prevailed and scores of bandits were neutralised by air and ground troops.
Aruwan also disclosed that Two General Purpose Machine Guns, three AK47 rifles and seven motorcycles were recovered from the enclave of the neutralised bandits.
The state government expressed excitement at the feedback, and praised the troops for their tenacity in the significant victory against the enemy forces.
While thanking the troops, made up of air force crews, police personnel, intelligence operatives, and local vigilante members who contributed to the success of the mission, the government urged the security forces to increase the momentum and vanquish the terrorists for good.
