Zamfara State police operatives have failed an armed attack on the large Dogon community of Zamfara State Local Government Area
On Sunday the operation along the road Gusau-Sokoto resulted in the killing of a lot of bandits who spent about four hours in police operations.
The robbers planned the robbery of innocent passengers of their property, but they were rapidly repelled by Police tactical acts used to protect against any attack by armed robbers, according to a Press Report signed by the Command Speaker, SP Muhammed Shehu.
The statement explains that many of the bandits have been seriously wounded and some of them have fled with various gunshot wounds.
Shehu also stated that police command properly cared for the corpses of the murdered bandits.
He reported that the road has now been cleared for car drivers and other road users with rigorous patrols to prevent hits.
“Tactical operators, including staff from special forces, still fight the surrounding forest to ensure the arrests or murder of the fleeing bandits,” he said.
