Fight Against Banditry In Plateau State Is Yielding Positive Results – Major Takwa


Following the continuous fight against insecurity across the nation, the military task force in Plateau state has made its known that its fight against bandits in the state is yielding positive outcomes.

This was disclosed by the spokesman for the operation that killed eight bandits in the Wase local government area of the state, Major Ishaku Takwa.

 According to him, “Our men, in conjunction with the local hunters, conducted a clearance operation in Sabongari general area of Wase LGA.”

He disclosed, “The exercise started on Saturday, and on Sunday, eight of the bandits were killed during the operation.”

He noted, “In the past, we had done similar exercise,s and the people were going about their normal businesses, but it appears that the bandits have regrouped and are disturbing the peace in the local communities.”

He added, “So the troops are going to continue with the clearance operation, which had begun until we clear the communities in Wase and other areas of the presence of the bandits.”

He maintained, “We have established Field Operational Base in Wase. But we also discovered that some locals are also conniving with the bandits to sabotage our efforts.”

He remarked, “Some of them who have infiltrated the communities also act as informants to the bandits. These are some of the challenges. But we are not relenting because all we need is information, and we have asked the local communities to fish out the bad elements in their midst and also give us timely information for us to protect the people. But so far, I can assure you that our efforts in the fight against bandits in the state are yielding positive results.”
