The troops of 1 Division of the Nigerian Army successfully apprehended two terrorist collaborators and ammunition suppliers in the Awon general area of Kachia Local Government Area, Kaduna State, during the early hours of Tuesday, October 24, 2023.

These arrests were made possible through information provided by a previously detained collaborator in the custody of the troops.

Lieutenant Colonel Musa Yahaya, the Acting Deputy Director of Army Public Relations for 1 Division, disclosed that the arrested individuals have been identified as Shuaibu Lawan and Salihu Usman.

Among the items recovered were a locally crafted AK-47 rifle, two dane guns, eight rounds of 9mm ammunition, seven live cartridges, and five spent cartridge shells.

These items were retrieved from the locations where they had been concealed within the criminals’ compound.

In a separate operation carried out on the same day, troops of the Division engaged in a clearance operation in the Dogon Daji-Saulawa general area, located in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area.

During this operation, they came into contact with terrorists and criminal elements. A fierce exchange of gunfire ensued, with the troops’ superior firepower compelling the criminals to disperse in disarray.

Among the items recovered were a G3 rifle, 16 motorcycles, two locally crafted guns, and a mobile phone.

Major General Valentine Okoro, the General Officer Commanding 1 Division Nigerian Army and Force Commander of Operation WHIRL PUNCH, has commended the troops for their dedication and directed them to continue the campaign, eradicating all criminal elements from the Division’s Area of Responsibility.
