The police in Kaduna thwarted bandits’ attack on Thursday, arrested one suspect and impounded five motorcycles.

Police spokesman in the State, Muhammad Jalige, said Friday that bandits were sighted on Galadimawa-Tumburku Road in Giwa LGA on motorcycles.

Commissioner of Police in the state, Yekini Ayoku, ordered the deployment of “Operation Whirl Punch” and those of the divisional team to clear the highway of the miscreants.

Mr Jalige added that, “In the ensuing engagement, the bandits caved in to superior fire power and professional tactical manoeuvre of the police operatives and scampered in different directions with bullet wounds.

“This was not before one of the outlaws, resident at Madugu Village was apprehended and five of their operational motorcycles recovered.

“The suspect, who has confessed to being a bandit, and exhibits were immediately moved to the police station for thorough investigation,” he stated.

Mr Jalige enjoined residents of the area to be on the lookout for suspicious individuals with bullet wounds and report them to the police and to other security agencies.
