Police kill 10 terrorists, rescue 39 kidnap victims in Bauchi


Operatives of the State Command have gunned down 10 suspected and rescued 39 victims in Yankari Forest.

This followed a successful joint security operation referred to as Operation Sharan Daji.

In a statement by the Police Public Relations of the Bauchi State Command, Ahmed Wakili, a preliminary investigation revealed that about 24 kidnappers invaded the Gaji community on Thursday last week.

The statement explained that the assailants reportedly targeted some businessmen returning from the Mararaban Liman Katagum and whisked them away to a place known as the Red Mountain in Yankari Forest.

The statement further explained that the kidnappers demanded N50 million each as ransom before they were rescued through an operation by the security personnel on Friday.
