NIGERIAN ARMY TROOPS NEUTRALIZES NOTORIOUS BANDIT, INSURGENT AND RUTHLESS KILLER BODERI ISYAKU                                                                 22-02-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                    The troops of the Nigerian Army has neutralised a notorious bandit, insurgent and ruthless killer Boderi Isyaku in a gun duel alongside some of his fighters around Bada/Riyawa general areas of Chikun and Igabi Local government area”

A statement by the overseeing Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs Samuel Aruwan explains that, the troops on Wednesday night, came in contact with Boderi and his fighters around Bada general area of Chikun Local government area.

According to the statement, the development was confirmed to the Kaduna State Government by security forces carrying out internal security operations and diligent checks from human intelligence sources.

It says despite the terrorists’ well-fortified position, the troops laid a successful ambush while Boderi and his associates walked into the trap and were cornered.

According to the statement, the troops had recovered two AK47 rifles, 300 rounds of ammunition, nine AK47 magazines, one magazine carrier, one Baofeng radio set and five motorcycles.

The statement points that, the elimination of Boderi Isyaku was significant milestone in the ongoing fight against terrorism and banditry as well as coordinated efforts by security forces in confronting those who seek to spread fear and chaos.

“Boderi was involved in a range of deadly attacks spanning Sabon Birni, Rigasa, Buruku, Gwagwada, Rijana and Kateri general areas, the Kaduna-Abuja Road, the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road, as well as Shiroro, Alawa, and Mangoro general areas of neighbouring Niger State. His activities included vast and elaborate operations in cattle rustling and gunrunning”

“Boderi, had for nearly a decade propagated a reign of fear, death and destruction in Kaduna State and neighboring Niger State, with a trademark of brutal attacks, mass abductions and cruel, relentless killing”

“His elimination comes as the culmination of tireless efforts by dedicated troops committed to restoring peace and security in the region. The General Officer Commanding, 1 Division, Nigerian Army (and Force Commander, Operation Whirl Punch) Major General VU Okoro, coordinated the operation through meticulous planning and intelligence”

“It was Boderi who plotted and executed the 11th March 2021 abduction of 39 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka, Igabi LGA. This high-profile kidnapping generated shock waves and massive panic around the country, as dozens of young students were whisked away and their families left to deal with unimaginable turmoil”

Receiving the report, Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State expressed satisfaction over the development, which he described as a pointer to the bravery and professionalism of the troops involved.

The Governor commended Major General Okoro, for his stellar leadership, and assured security forces in Kaduna State of his unflinching support and readiness to sustain cooperation towards the successful achievement of their objectives.

The statement urges authorities and members of the public that some of Boderi’s associates and gang members sustained gunshot injuries during that decisive encounter while Citizens in the general area and beyond are therefore enjoined not to render assistance (medical or otherwise) to individuals carrying such suspicious injuries, but to immediately report these persons to security agencies.
