By Sadiq Aminu                                                      Four terrorists have been killed by troops of the Nigerian Army in ambush and raid operations in Kaduna and Katsina states on Friday.

The troops have also foiled a kidnap attempt on the Headmaster of a primary school in Plateau State.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Director, Army Public Relations, Major General Onyema Nwachukwu.

Responding to credible intelligence, on the use of Gwamtu – Duduwa- Kujeni route in Kajuru Local Government of Kaduna State for movement of logistics to support terrorists in Rijana forest, troops staged an ambush against the terrorists, eliminating 2 of them.

In the operation, the troops recovered 2 AK 47 Rifles, 2 AK 47 Magazines, 4 rounds of 7.62mm (Special) and PKGM link belt.

Other items recovered include one recoiling spring, 2 motorbikes, camouflage jungle hat, packs of tobacco and fetish amulets.

Similarly, troops spurred by intelligence successfully raided a terrorists’ hideout at Dutsen Kura in Batsari Local Government Area of Katsina State, where 2 terrorists were killed after a fierce exchange of fire.

Items recovered from the terrorists’ den include one 81mm Mortal bomb, 3 Baofeng Radios, one empty PKT Gun ammunition box/links, 4 Bandoliers, 2 motorbikes, 4 pairs of military woodland camouflage and one ballistic helmet.

In Plateau State, troops responding to a distress call swiftly repelled a kidnap attempt on one Solomon Zakka, the Headmaster of Pilot Primary School, Daffo, who was kidnapped from his residence at Maiduna Village in Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau.

On being alerted, the vigilant troops pursued and engaged the kidnappers in a firefight, forcing them to relinquish their abductee.
