One of the bandits was neutralized and a motorcycle was recovered in the encounter while scores of them escaped with gunshots wounds.

Similarly, the Dutsima Police Area Commander led the police troop in the area to block the escape route of the bandits operating at Yarbudu village and equally engaged them in a gun duel in which 5 of the bandits were neutralized and 5 motorcycles recovered from the bandits.

This was disclosed in a statement made available to journalists by the PRO Katsina State Police Command, Isah Gambo on behalf of the State Police Commissioner.

The Commissioner of Police attributed the success of the police in quelling the bandits attack on the communities to “The doggedness, uncommon courage and tactical operational strategy adopted by the Police officers.”
