The team led by the General Officer Commanding, GOC 1 Division Nigerian Army, Major General Taoreed Lagbaja overpowered the bandits with superior firepower neutralising one of them while three others were captured alive and some of the criminal elements escaped with gunshot wounds in the fight.
A statement issued by the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu said ”the Patrol team also recovered one AK 47 rifle, 27 rounds of 7.62 mm Special ammunition and 18 Motorcycles.”
The Army therefore, urged members of the public, particularly health facilities and paramedics to watch out for persons who may be seeking medical attention for gunshot wounds and report to relevant security agencies.
