Army Kill Two Terrorists In Kaduna

The Nigerian Army has announced that its forces neutralized two militants during operations aimed at clearing areas in Kaduna State.

In a statement issued on Thursday, July 4, the Army stated that during a current mission in Gama Gira Village within Igabi Local Government Area, they managed to neutralize the terrorist groups by overpowering them, leading to the death of two members of the terrorist organization.

The press release further revealed how the Army seized a single AK-47 rifle, a magazine filled with 7 rounds of 7.62 mm special ammunition, a Tecno smartphone, a charger for the phone, and a total of two thousand and ten naira.

“In a separate operation, troops recovered one PKT gun from fleeing terrorists at Jangeme Ruwan Kunku general area.

“The recovery was made after troops exploited the general area following a sustained operation that led to the dislodgement of the terrorists in the area,” the statement added.

The news is coming after bandits released Janet Gimba, a judge who was abducted last Sunday in Kaduna along with her four children.

While the judge has been freed, her children remain in captivity, with the kidnappers demanding a hefty ransom for their release.

Naija News reports that the release of Judge Janet Gimba was confirmed by her husband, Dr. Musa Gimba, a medical doctor, who revealed that the bandits are still holding their children.

Dr Gimba disclosed that the abductors have demanded a ransom of ₦150 million for the children’s release and have issued a dire ultimatum of three days, threatening their lives should the demand not be met.

The situation took a tragic turn when the Kaduna State Police Command reported the death of the couple’s 14-year-old son, Victor Gimba.

Victor’s body was discovered on Tuesday, July 2, 2024, near Ungwan Bayero, Duste village, close to the toll gate along the Kaduna-Abuja expressway.

The Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mansir Hassan, stated that this grim discovery has intensified the urgency of the ongoing rescue operations.

In response to this tragic incident, the Kaduna State Police, along with other security agencies, are said to be working relentlessly to rescue the remaining hostages and apprehend the culprits behind these heinous acts.
