Bandits invade military base in Zamfara kill a dozen


Terrorist bandits on Saturday September 11, invaded a military base in Zamfara State where they allegedly killed 12 security operatives.

Apart from those killed, the terrorists were said to have wounded three personnel in the attack on Forward Operating Base in Mutumji, Dansadau Local Government of Zamfara State.

According to the report, nine Air Force, two police and one Nigerian Army personnel were killed by the bandits who also carted away weapons and other equipment from the slain security personnel before torching the military base.

A source at the Defence Headquarters was quoted as saying; “Operations are ongoing in that area and there is total shut down of GSM communications.

“Our troops are consolidating on successes recorded so far. Information on ongoing operations will be premature at this stage.

“Let us all join voices in ensuring out troops once and for all deal with the menace of insecurity in the Northwest and North-central. They need not be distracted for now.”
