Benue Police Command said it neutralised two notorious bandits in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area (LGA) of the state and recovered arms.

SP Sewuese Anene, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), in a statement on Wednesday in Makurdi, made this known. 

Anene said the Police Command had acted on information about the regrouping of bandits at De-Mtsa village, Kastina-Ala, for nefarious activities.

He said a team from Operation Zenda Joint Task Force (JTF), led by ASP Felix Nomiyugh, its commander, swiftly invaded the area and neutralised two bandits during heavy gun battles.

The spokesperson said, “Upon arrival at the scene on March 27, the bandits engaged the police in a gun duel, but superior firepower from the operatives dislodged them.

“Consequently, while two of the bandits sustained gunshot injuries and were confirmed dead at the hospital, one was arrested, and the others escaped with wounds, but they are currently being trailed by the operatives.

“Exhibits recovered from the scene include one type 06 Rifle, three AK-47 magazines loaded with 7.6mm ammunition, 80 other ammunition, camouflage uniforms, and assorted phones.”
